Last payment done for SI chancery work in Port Moresby
Foreign Affairs Minister Sam Abal handed over the cheque to Solomon Island High Commissioner Bernard Bata’anisia in the VIP lounge at the Jackson International Airport last week as part of the bilateral agreement to help the Solomon Island Government build their new office.
This money is part of the K7.4 million by the PNG Government to build the chancery and K2.4 million has already been given for the engineering and scoping work with the securing of the land.
Mr Abal said that the final payment would enable a joint PNG-Chinese construction team to start work soon.
