A team from the Republic of China (ROC) will visit the country in the coming weeks to scope for business opportunities here.
According to Prime Minister Rick Houenipwela, it’s an investment visit.
Prime Minister Houenipwela and ROC’s Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs José María Liu had been having sideline talks about investments when they attended the recent Pacific Islands Forum (PIF) meeting in Nauru.
Prime Minister Hou said ROC’s interest to invest here is not new.
He said already a ROC company had signed an agreement with the Solomon Islands Ports Authority on a plan to setup a solar factory here.
The ROC Company is already here finalising its plan to setup the factory.
According to Prime Minister Hou, it’s a big factory that will manufacture solar and other renewable equipment.
