Trade show next at Malu’u: SMEC.

It's Malu’u next following this month’s success of the National Trade Show in Auki. Small and Medium Enterprises Council (SMEC) of Solomon Islands has accepted an invitation from the Malaita Premier Richard Irosaea and his Government.

SMEC will head the “Trade part” of a show to be celebrated in Malu’u, North Malaita, for the province’s celebration of its second appointed day on the August 15.

The council said in a news release that it agreed as this initiative will again help rural people to begin engaging in business activities. It said the Malu’u Trade show will be small compared with the “National Trade Show 2007” early this month during the national independence anniversary. But the council is confident that the Malu’u celebration will gain support nationwide.

Malu’u is certainly the next commercial centre of the province, it said. Basic infrastructure is now in place including roads, power, water, telephones and in September ANZ, through the Bank Blo Evriwan (Mobile Bank). These facilities has certainly put Malu’u on the map as the next destination, besides Auki in Malaita Province.

According to the technical director of SMEC Mr. Leliana Firisua, his council are ready to assist once more in this regard especially when we are all looking at advancing this Country’s Bottom up Approach. ”We are certain that our private sector, including our major supporters, will again stand with us in moving forward the business sector right down to the rural people of this country.”

The council’s secretary, Robinson Taebo, will head the Malu’u, Techmart 2007. The Malu’u celebration will cover three components: Trade, Agriculture, Culture and Musical Show.
