Solomon Islanders urged to help develop Solomon Islands

Solomon Islanders should help their countrymen develop their nation.

Permanent secretary of the Ministry of Rural development and Indigenous Affairs Dr Judson Leafasia says it's now time Solomon Islanders take control of themselves and plan their future.

He says the time to depend on foreigners giving advise on how to manage finance and run businesses is over.

Dr Leafasia says advises from foreigners and aid money won't last long but the more Solomon Islanders know how to manage their finances and run businesses, the more they will involve in the development of their country.

Dr Leafasia congratulated the Ministry of Commerce, Industries and employment for engaging three local business centres to carry out financial literacy courses in the first 25 constituencies in the country.

He says these centres are more familiar with Solomon islands settings and will be in a better position to advise local people on how to manage their finances.
