SI Opposition Leader urges government to produce national development plan to support its BUA policy

Leader of the Solomon Islands Opposition, Hon Fred Fono is calling on the national government to produce its National development plan to support its Bottom Up Approach Policy.

Mr Fono says that as it is, the Bottom Up Approach policy is isolated because there's no National Development Plan to base the policy on.

He says its now 15 months since the government took office but there's no development plan to indicate to national planners and development partners where the country is heading.

Mr Fono says without the National development plan, donors will be hesitant to provide funding to various sectoral plans.

"Bottom Up Approach Policy is a policy of the government but it has no basis. It has to be incorporated in the overall National development Plan before we are convinced that the government is on the right track and donors will have the confidence in the government to support different sectoral programmes".
