THE Democratic Coalition Government for Advancement has promised the people of Isabel that the Ghozoruru project will be up and running early next year.
In his recent visit to the Provincial Head Quarter in Buala, Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare said since the Commodities Export Marketing Authority CEMA was revitalized and recapitalized, Isabel province will benefit from the program.
He said CEMA at the end of the year will at least start to buy copra and cocoa from at least four of its buying centers around the country and will be rolling out on three stages.
“I trust that the people of this great province will work closely with CEMA to help build our province and lift the standard of living of our people”, Sogavare said.
He said the government has supported a lot of Kava farmers from Isabel, as a result, production of kava has increased from nine tons in 2019 to 17.4 tons in 2020 despite the global pandemic.
“This has resulted in exports earning revenue for our country”, Sogavare said.
