Taiwan Ambassador to hand over second payment of RCDF to Solomon's PM today

Taiwan will formally release the second tranche of the 2008 Constituency and Rural Development Fund to the government today.

Prime Minister Dr Derek Sikua will receive the 10-million dollars when he meets Taiwan's Ambassador to Solomon Islands George Chan this afternoon.

The Taiwanese Embassy says the 10-million dollars include allocations for RCDF, Micro Project Scheme for grassroots development and Millennium Development Fund.

The funding is aimed at enhancing socio-economic development for rural communities and families.

The Embassy says Taiwan continues to support the Government to implement its policy to help the rural advancement in the Solomon Islands.

Ambassador George Chan says he believes this funding would enhance revitalization of rural production and the national economy.

The Ambassador urges Members of Parliament and constituency committees to consult with each other before using this fund on the right things in a transparent and accountable way.
