GUADALCANAL Provincial Government (GPG) attempts to reclaim Guadalcanal’s integrity as a leading province and make significant improvements in management and control of public finances.
Guadalcanal Province Provincial Planning and Development Coordinator (PPDC) Mr Don Ricky during Paripao Ward’s celebration yesterday at Northeast Guadalcanal to mark the province 34th ‘2nd Appointed Day’ said GPG hope’s to enhance social services delivery and public infrastructure while at the same time, create a vibrant economy with sustainable engagement of resources for purposes of building a reputable and resilient livelihood for all Guadalcanal people.
“The GPG model not only deals with development goals but it does instill the sound values or morals of governance in the system of provincial government development and service delivery,” said Ricky.
“Through its PCDF projects, GPG promotes local development, improves the coverage and quality of local infrastructure and services, better managed natural resources and environmental protection, and increases in local economy activity, employment and revenues. The intermediate outcome is improved provincial governance for development.”
Amongst many witnessed, Mr Ricky pointed out to locals that two primary outcomes were in Paripao Ward as an example being the Kolosulu RHC1 project which is at its finishing stage and the Numbu WRC project which is still at domain and will be completed soon.
