Minister health says his constituency welcomes development


THE Minister of Health and Medical Services (MHMS) and Member of Parliament (MP) for North Guadalcanal, Hon. Paul Bosawai, said his constituency is open to development and investment.

Speaking in parliament, Hon. Bosawai described the North Guadalcanal Constituency as the best avenue for economic development to grow our national economy.

“It is evident we can contribute to the economy given our geographical location, accessing both domestic and international markets,” Hon. Bosawai said.

He spoke on previous and current economic activities such as the Tasimboko rice farm in the 1960s and the Guadalcanal Plains Palm Oil Limited (GPPOL) to demonstrate North Guadalcanal Constituency’s potential to contribute to the national economy.

Hon. Bosawai highlighted that, being a country that imports rice in large quantities, his constituency can venture into rice farming to cut down on importation.

“This is an opportunity for a domestic and international market, and this is the basis of our internal trade if we invest in the domestic manufacturing industry, he added.

Furthermore, he thanked the people of North Guadalcanal for their continuous contribution and willingness to keep the national economy afloat. 

Hon. Bosawai then pledged to work closely with the government on future plans in the agriculture sector.

“We are ready and looking forward to working closely with the Government of National Unity and Transformation and other donor partners to industrialize agriculture as an internal approach to grow our economy,” he said.
