SIX Members of Parliament (MPs) from Australia who were in the country this week to visit programmes sponsored and supported by Australian Aid will leave today.
One of the officials, Hon Susan Lamb told the paper on Wednesday that one of the newly introduced programmes in the country, Safer Cities for Girls is among programmes in the country that the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) is working closely on with aid agencies to ensure that they make a difference in people’s lives.
In relation, she said that earlier this week, they visited a remote school, the Special Development Centre (SDC) and had a number of briefings from the police.
Lamb added that they also had a number of briefings from different agencies including DFAT on foreign aid projects.
“We’ve also had briefings from DFAT as well around the foreign aid projects and how the relationship between the Solomon government, Australian department of foreign affairs and training and the aid agencies are working together post-RAMSI to continue building a wonderful country of the Solomon Islands,” she said.
