GUADALCANAL Province is planning to hold a huge land summit in Honiara next month.
The Guadalcanal land summit is supported by the provincial government, with support commitment coming from the National government and a UN agency.
Guadalcanal Provincial Assembly Member, John Nano, confirmed it will happen next month and all Guadalcanal leaders are expected to attend.
Asked about the agenda, Nano said it will cover almost everything concern Guadalcanal land.
“This summit will look at issues like the current land tenure system, future of Guadalcanal land, Honiara city land, everything about Guadalcanal land,” Nano confirmed.
He said they are still finalizing the actual day and venue of the event and soon they will send out invitation all across Guadalcanal.
Nano said it is hoped the outcome of the summit will be condensed into a report that will be the basis of their province’s land ordinances.
He said they wanted land ordinances or laws to suit the culture of Guadalcanal with regards to how lands are sold, transfer and so on.
“We expect leaders from all over the island representing the four region and 21 wards of Guadalcanal and 21 houses of chiefs to attend,” Nano said.
