Solomon's government commits SB$1 million per constituency towards livelihood development

The national government has approved a Livelihood Development Fund which distributes one million dollars to each of the 50 constituencies in the Solomon Islands.

The Fund comes under the Development Budget which was passed in Parliament last week.

Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development and Indigenous Business Affairs, Judson Leafasia, says the Fund is being provided by the Government specifically for projects that would benefit constituencies.

Dr Leafasia says the Livelihood Development Fund is the first of its kind, adding the government decided such assistance for constituencies to enable quick and direct access to funds to develop tangible projects.
