MALAITA Provincial government is looking forward for the Japanese funded Kilu’ufi new hospital building.
This was highlighted by Provincial premier Daniel Suidani in his speech at the 2022/2023 revised budget meeting yesterday.
Mr Suidani said according to the plan the ground works for the new hospital will likely commenced around April this year.
“According to their plan, it is likely that they will be on the ground around April this year. We hope that they will stick to this timeline and deliver the project as expected.
“We know ourselves that the health facilities of this province have not be the best we would like to have, sadly, this is not a devolved function therefore, it is likely that control will still be from Honiara.” Mr Suidani said.
He said the other major project that is progressing well is the Bina Tuna processing plant project under the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources.
“There has been good coordination on this project with MPG that resulted in the province allowing the land below the office of the premier to accommodate the office the Ministry of Fisheries and the Bina project.”
“This province will continue to provide the necessary support to the government and the project team in Honiara on this project.”
“As you may know under the Australia Solomon Islands infrastructure project, they have supported Solomon water to conduct studies in the water supply for the Bina project. This is ongoing as well and that my office has been kept informed of the activities under this component. The same goes to Malu’u new market building that will also be funded under SIIP” Mr Suidani updated the assembly.
