SMEC Chairman confident that Solomons 2007 Trade and Cultural Show village in Auki will be ready before July

The 2007 Trade and Cultural show organising committee hopes that things will be ready for the show at Auki before the first of July.

Chairman of the Small and Medium Enterprise Council (SMEC) and North Malaitan, Michael Maena who is also Chairman of the Auki Trade and Cultural Show this year, says his committee is working around the clock to ensure deadlines are met.

Mr Maena says flyers, a stage, a tower and other equipment for this year's events have been secured from the Ministry of Commerce and will be shipped to Auki on the 21st of this month.

He says that a team from the organising committee will be stationed in Auki as from next week to oversee ground work on the proposed site.

Mr Maena says his committee sees no obstacle in their role as the main organising body for this year's event.

He says the working committee is confident that the proposed new Auki Market area will be converted into a beautiful village for the Trade and Cultural Show event before the program kicks off on July the first.

It is understood another North Malaitan, Mr Leliana Daowana Firisua who is the advisor of SMEC is currently in Nadi, Fiji attending the trade negotiations meeting. He will fly back to Honiara tomorrow morning and will go down to see the ground work at Auki next week.
