CNURA government to table 2008 national budget in parliament today

Solomon Islands Minister of Finance Snyder Rini is tabling the 2008 National Budget in parliament today.

The Government Communications Unit says the total 2008 budget is yet to be publicly disclosed following a week long scrutiny of ministerial submissions by the Public Accounts Committee last week.

The 2008 parliament session started on Monday with events involving the election of M-P for Northwest Choiseul Clement Kengava as Deputy Speaker of Parliament and a cultural opening ceremony performed by chiefs and representatives of the four main tribes of Guadalcanal Province.

The two events were followed by the speech from the throne from the Governor General, Sir Nathaniel Waena.

Parliament is expected to start debating the budget next week.
