WESTERN Provincial government has launched its Policy Reform Statement in Gizo.
Speaking at the launch, Western Premier, Hon. David Gina said the provincial government is embarking on a development path that the current representatives of the people have chosen to follow in the next four years.
He said the Western Provincial Government believes it is time Western Solomon acts like a grown up province and not counting to be garbed in diapers and fed with milk.
“This new Provincial Government leaders have taken a bold step to put its hopes and aspirations, its vision, missions, goals and values.”
“Its economic, social-political aims and objectives in a book we have written them down so everyone can read, understand and take the necessary actions accordingly,” Gina said.
He said the government has also written this down to remind themselves of their commitments and to monitor the progress they make on each policy.
Gina then challenged the people of the province to work together to take up the development path to a much higher level of human progress and prosperity because we everyone has the potential and opportunities to do that.
He thanked the National Government and former provincial governments for seeing it fit to allow Western Province to host such developmental fundamentals.
“Therefore, we as participants in development must do our best to nature and protect them”, Gina said.
The Policy Reform Statement Theme is “Progressing together in inclusive growth and shared prosperity.”
The launching ceremony was held at the PT 109 restaurant during the closing of the 9th Western Provincial Assembly meeting.
