DCC to push existing development projects

22 January 2015

THE Democratic Coalition for Change (DCC) government will continue to implement the existing development projects on Malaita, Guadalcanal, Western and Choiseul.

These are mainly in agriculture, industrial, township, aviation, energy and fisheries.

The projects include Auluta Palm Oil, Waisisi Palm oil, Bina Habour Industrial Township Project, Fiu Hydro  Project, Suava  Tuna  Canning  Project (Malaita), Noro Industrial Park, Munda International Airport (Western province), Mamara/Tasivarongo Township  Project, Tina Hydropower Development Project, Ndoma   Tuna  Canning  Project  and  Tenaru  Tuna  Canning Project (Guadalcanal), Choiseul Bay Township Project, Sasamunga Airstrip Project (Choiseul) and Savo Geothermal Project.

In its policy statement, DCC Government said it is aware of the imbalance in the distribution of existing development projects when weighted against provincial distribution. 

“However, when seen against population the imbalance is non-existent.

“As a measure against provincial imbalance, the DCC Government will willfully balance the imbalance by implementing new development projects in other provinces,” the policy statement outlines.

The police statement is expected to be completed and launched in the coming weeks.
