A Government statement said this is according to the Indonesian Ambassador accredited to Solomon Islands, His Excellency Andriana Supandy during his courtesy visit to Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare on Wednesday this week.
His Excellency Supandy said Indonesia is happily committed to support Solomon Islands in its preparation to host the 2023 Pacific Games, and they are hopeful the grants will be released this year.
