Solomon Islands need sound decisions: RAMSI's outgoing Development Coordinator

RAMSI's outgoing Development Coordinator has called on Solomon Islands leaders to make sound decisions that will take the country down the path to prosperity, good governance, stability and security.

Stuart Schaefer, who worked as Development Coordinator for the last two years made the call during his farewell in Honiara Wednesday night.

Mr Schaefer encouraged everyone to find ways to enable Solomon Islands maximise the advantages expected to be gained from the human and financial resources RAMSI has brought to the country.

He emphasised the need for everyone to work together more closely on medium and longer term issues facing the country.

He said anyone making decisions especially at national level need the best possible advice.

He pointed out that while Solomon Islands is developing the capacity of the public service to provide such advice, Government on the other hand needs to make good policy decisions, citing the logging industry as an example.
