Solomon Islands Chamber of Commerce and Industries, SICCI, has commended the Japan International Cooperation Agency, JICA, and New Zealand Aid for their strong contributions to the betterment of transport and infrastructure around Honiara.
The Commerce Chamber in a statement acknowledged New Zealand Aid for its enormous contribution, especially in the areas of transport and infrastructure during the post-flood disaster relief efforts in the country.
The statement said the building of a new Bailey bridge that will connect China Town to Central Honiara represents a real and tangible benefit and a huge boost to local businesses as they look to recover following the disaster.
Meanwhile, SICCI also thanked JICA for its agreement on terms with the Solomon Islands Government regarding the Ports improvement project.
The Chamber adds, the Ports improvement project, which is expected to cost around 1-hundred million dollars, will see the construction of an international wharf with a 15 meter berth, an expanded container yard and the provision of a water supply facility, a lighting facility and beacon for the ports.
