Malaita seeks to strike sister relationship with Taiwan's Pengu County

Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare said discussions are well underway for the establishment of a sister relationship between the Malaitan Provincial Government and Taiwan’s Pengu County.

Mr Sogavare told journalists at his weekly Press conference in Honiara yesterday that he has established the link for the sister relationship during his recent state visit to Taiwan.

The Prime Minister said he met with the governor of the Pengu County and proposed to him the idea of establishing a sister relationship with a Solomon Islands Province and he received a positive response.

Pengu is an off-shore island county that is well developed in tourism.

Mr Sogavare said he had established communication with the Premier of Malaita Province, Richard Na’amo about the matter and their discussions were well advanced.
