Malaita Premier Richard Na'amo Irosaea and Japanese Charge 'd Affaires to Solomon Islands, Akira Iwanade, yesterday signed a Grant Contract for the improvement of two schools on Malaita.

The project consists of one classroom and one staff house for each of the schools.

Speaking during the signing ceremony, Mr Iwanade said he was happy to sign the contract for the grassroots and human security projects on behalf of Japan.
