Solomons government launches rural development awareness programme

The Solomon Islands government has launched a radio awareness programme on it "Bottom-up Approach" or rural development policy.

The 15 minutes radio programme is broadcasted twice a week over the national radio, the Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation (SIBC).

Chief of Staff of the Office of the Prime Minister, Dr Judson Leafasia in the first programme on Saturday last weekend explains some of the things that the programme will be covering.

"These include legal instruments that are in place, such as the national Constitution, rules and regulations that regulates how the government operations. Others are the infrastructures and logistics involved in delivering services. We must understand that government is not an end in itself, government is a means to an end. The end is what we like the people of Solomon Island to improve their livelihood."

Dr Leafasia says the awareness program on the Government "Bottom-up Approach" policy will be aired on Saturday and Monday evenings over the next three months.
