Consultation is a key to RCDF transparency and accountability: Taiwanese Ambassador

The Ambassador of the Republic of China, George Chan has urged Members of Solomon Islands Parliament and their Constituency Committees to consult each other to ensure Taiwanese development funds are used in a transparent and accountable manner.

He made the statement yesterday while releasing the second payment of 10-million dollars towards the 2008 Constituency and Rural Development Fund to the Prime Minister, Dr Derek Sikua.

Ambassador Chan said the fund should be used on the right things and at the right places.

The Constituency and Rural Development Project includes the RCDF, the Micro Project Scheme for grassroots development and the Millennium Development Fund.

He told Prime Minister Sikua that Taiwan fully supports the Government’s rural development policy.

In response, Prime Minister Sikua said the Government and people of Solomon Islands appreciated with gratitude the assistance given by the Taiwanese Government.
