Taiwan releases $11.2m to gov’t on Christmas eve
The funding, which came under the “National Development Fund” was received by Prime Minister Gordon Darcy Lilo.
The Government submitted the 25 development projects for funding to the Taiwanese embassy November this year.
A statement from the embassy said the projects are focused on various prioritised development, including agriculture tractor, timber milling, health centre, transportation vessel, solar project, sporting activities, roads improvement and maintenance, housing and lighting, water and sanitation, primary and secondary schools, and women and youth advancement.
Mr Wu said Taiwan has been fully supporting the Government to implement its policy to advance the development of rural villages, and help to alleviate poverty and improve the quality of life for rural people.
Prime Minister Lilo said the Taiwanese funding support will enhance the livelihoods of rural Solomon Islanders who are struggling to make ends meet in the rural communities.
“Although these are small projects they will have long and big positive impact to empower the rural economy of Solomon Islands,” Mr Lilo said.
