Dear Editor - Speaking at a meeting at the Heritage Park Hotel in Honiara on Tuesday this week, Dr. Paul Holden, a leading economist and the Team Leader of the Pacific Private Sector Development Initiative (PSDI), said the Solomon Islands is one of the leading reformers in the Pacific, resulting in growth for a period of 10 years of more than 3 percent.

FINAL consultation on the Special Economic Zone Technical Expertise draft bill commenced on Thursday in Honiara.

Representatives of the private sectors, Non Government Organisations and Isabel, Central, Makira and Guadalcanal Provinces have participated in the two-day workshop.

FOUR senior Immigration Division officials have successfully completed a four-day training programme on electronic passports and border control and management systems in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, last week as the Government moves to introduce e-Passports later this year.

A statement from the Immigration Division says the four-day training was delivered from 10th to 13th May 2016 by selected specialised personnel from Information and Management System Group of IRIS Corporation Berhad, a Malaysian company contracted by the national government to set the e-Passport technology here.

The training will equip the four officials with knowledge and skills required for the implementation of the e-passport and border control and management systems, expected to be available for all citizens by the end of 2016. 

The training is also part of the e-passport and border control and management systems Agreement signed in Honiara by IRIS Corporation Berhad and the Government on 25th November 2015, which the Immigration Division of the Ministry of Commerce, Industry, Labour and Immigration is now implementing.
