Mr Henry Tuhu made the above statement following the signing agreement on this infrastructure project in Honiara on Friday.

He said at the moment there is a road improvement going on in Auki town in preparation for this significant and economic impetus project.

“The project once completed will improve transport services, support delivery of goods and services and enhance other socioeconomic activities in Auki.

“The project will help improve the livelihood of people living in and around Auki in terms of small business activities they engage on in Auki.
