AN outspoken representative from the Solomon Islands Maritime Transport Association (SIMTA) who is also a ship owner, Mr David Faradatolo, has called on government to develop the maritime industry.
He said if there is a plan on developing Solomon Islands, the government must first focus on developing the marine sector because many of the country’s economic developments is deposited in this particular sector.
“Anything to do with development in Solomon Islands has to be address through Maritime sector,” Mr Faradatolo said.
He said this country needs a lot of things to grow, and one segment that needs attention is the maritime sector.
