Involvement in commerce is every citizens' business: Hill assure Solomon Islanders

The Ministry of Commerce, Industries and Employment will try to ensure as many Solomon Islanders as possible involve in commercial activities.

Minister responsible, Francis Billy Hilly made the assurance when he opened the refurbished office of the Consumer and Price Control Division yesterday.

Mr Hilly says that under the government's policy framework, his ministry is mandated to accomplish a number of policy goals and program.

They include an increase in the number of skilled workers, increased rural income generating activities, more jobs for Solomon Islanders, an improved investment environment, diversified export products and a strong effective and efficient private sector.

Mr Hilly says the government also expects his ministry to become effective, efficient and private sector-friendly adding the task must have an impact in the welfare of the people of Solomon Islands.

He says to-date government programs and projects have been implemented with legislative reforms continuing while capacity building in the provinces will resume after the 2008 budget session.

Meanwhile, Mr Hilly will lead a delegation to Bina Harbour and Suava in Malaita Province some shortly and similar visits to other provinces will follow.
