PROVINCIAL Member for ward seven (7) and coordinator of the Malaita planning committee which hosted the recent Malaita Summit says leaders of the province must implement development plans and ideas highlighted in the summit report.
Leslie Kwaiga highlighted this at a handing over ceremony of the report to the Malaita provincial government in Auki this week.
He said, the report contains alot of innovative ideas from the very best Malaitan scholars and people who attended the conference early last month.
The report was drafted by deputy coordinator of Malaita summit planning committee Dr Judson Lee Leafasia with the help of his committee members.
Mr Kwaiga said, the report has highlighted some of the development needs of the province and its people.
“Therefore it is our task as leaders to do something and make use of the report.
“If we do not do any thing with this report it will lay somewhere, gathering dust and nobody will think and benefit from it.”
He encouraged the Malaita provincial government to seriously implement some of the things highlighted in the report.
“Malaita provincial government has already launched it’s Alliance Reform and Transformation policy and this report is one way to begin its development goal for the people.
“We will refine this policy document and road map so that everyone could understand it.
“Our target eventually is to come up with a road map for Malaita in the next 20 to 50 years and that could be successful if we come up with such important works in the areas specified.”
