HIGHLY EDUCATED HUMAN RESOURCE, ECONOMY’s NEXT MAINSTAY: PM
Solomon Islands natural resources cannot sustain its fast-growing population rate; the country should, therefore, pursue to educate Solomon Islanders to be able to secure employment abroad.
Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare announced to Solomon Islands Community in Brisbane before the weekend.
Prime Minister Sogavare suggests, highly educated Solomon Islands do not need to come back home to work after the completion of their studies.
He says they can work in their countries of study or secure employment elsewhere abroad.
Mr. Sogavare explains, the only thing the Government needs is a law to ensure Solomon Islanders working abroad remit a certain portion of their earnings home.
The Prime Minister says Malta and the Republic of Fiji are doing ‘really’ well from the exportation of their highly educated human resources and Solomon Islands can follow suit if it starts investing seriously in the education of its human resources.
Prime Minister Sogavare adds the United Nations is an institution that highly educated Solomon Islanders should eye employment with, adding that Solomon Islands has not filled its employment quota with the UN and the DCCG is keen to see this quota filled.
