DEAR EDITOR, I was very pleased to read in the Island Sun newspaper today, Wednesday, that the Guadalcanal and Canadian governments have decided to extend their employment mobility opportunities to the people of Makira-Ulawa province.
CITREC’s Chairman, Mr Ashwant Dwivedi, was quoted in the newspaper as saying, “I can confirm that apart from tourism and agriculture labour opportunities, Makira-Ulawa province has the opportunity to be part of the food processing sector.”
Mr Dwivedi also spoke about the employment opportunities encouraging inclusive participation for both women and men.
I once wrote likening the work of the Guadalcanal Premier’s in linking up with CITREC and the Canadian Government has having “pulled rabbits out of a hat” and it seems the magic is ongoing with Premier Siapu now becoming skilled in the art.
To Mr Dwivedi and the Canadian Government I say thank you for the work opportunities you are continuing to give to the people of the Solomon Islands.
