PM LILO SINGLED OUT ISABEL AS MOST PROGRESS PROVINCE
Prime Minister Gordon Darcy Lilo has singled out Isabel as one of the most progressive and dynamic provinces critically involved in shaping the national development agenda.
Prime Minister Gordon Darcy Lilo says its chain of accomplishments deserves national commendation.
Speaking as the guest of honour during the opening of the Isabel Development Company’s new Timber Yard on Friday, Prime Minister Lilo said, the Government and the people of Solomon Islands wish to congratulate the chairman, directors, management, staff and the people of Isabel for their contribution to national development.
He said, IDC has grown from its small beginning as a shipping company to one of the most successfully run local companies in Solomon Islands.
Mr Lilo added, IDC’s records are impressive- nurturing its financial capability whilst other provincial owned companies are fast winding down and file for bankruptcy.
He said, Isabelians are strong believers in community teamwork, equal participation and often hold high regard for their chiefs, provincial and church leaders demonstrating the spirit of cooperation at all levels.
