THE Solomon Islands Democratic Coalition for Change Government (SIDCCG) says it is still strongly committed in progressing projects on Malaita.
This was a statement in response to Island Sun queries to the Office of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (OPMC).
Island Sun questioned the current Government’s continual focus on Malaita projects and how much will be achieved in the remainder of its short tenure.
The paper’s queries were sent to Mr Douglas Marau, the Press Secretary to the Prime Minister Hon Rick Hou.
“In this regard, the reprioritisation exercise currently embarked upon by the SIDCCG consists of current major development projects such Bina Harbour Fish Factory and identified infrastructure projects in road transportation and the aviation sector, which can be delivered during the current period,” the PM’s Press Secretary said.
He then added that this is in line with the PM’s announcement in his maiden speech in reference to the SIDCCG Budget for 2018 which will be reflective of immediate short term goals that are achievable in the remaining months of the 10th Parliament.
Island Sun was then told that this would become clearer when the 2018 Budget is finalised for the upcoming Budget session in March.
