This came following an election held at Kirakira on 28th December following the visit of ICCTISI Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Charles Dausabea.
Mr Dausabea said the election was held after he briefed them about the role and function of ICCTISI to the business people and women in the provincial capital.
He said the people fully appreciated the role of ICCTISI, which is toliaise and coordinate all the indigenous businesses to come together so they can work together for common role of participating in the national economy.
“The people look at ICCTISI as a relieve valve to release the pressure that they have been suppressed by our foreign friends on wholesaling and trading businesses,” he said.
The elected members of Makira Ulawa are chairman – Daniel Wakatora; Vice chairman – Sudan Wale; Secretary – Noel Mamau; Treasurer – Emmanuel Hulanga.
The ordinary members are Martin Dalu and Daisy Wakatora.
