The Division also strongly advocates support for the private sector as an engine of economic growth and thereby, is committed to undertaking a systematic review of relevant policies and legislation that support the growth of the private sector in the country.
Finally, the Division is also mindful of the need to work collaboratively with relevant stakeholders, including NGOS and the Civil Society, to create an environment that is conducive for businesses and cooperatives operating in the Solomon Islands.
