PRIME Minister Manasseh Sogavare has conveyed his sincere appreciation to the roles women play in the development of Solomon Islands.
Prime Minister Sogavare highlighted this during his national address yesterday, as thousands of women around the country celebrate the International Women’s Day.
The Prime Minister said the women of Solomon Islands contribute a great deal to the social, economic, cultural, and political developments in the Country.
“Whether it be at the Village, Provincial, National, Regional, or International levels, our women provide the backbone to our development aspirations,” he said.
Despite this, the Prime Minister said many times, women’s contributions to our national development go unnoticed,
“I on behalf of my Government recognize and acknowledge the efforts and achievement of all our women in Solomon Islands,” he said.
The Prime Minister said the Ministry of Public Service has released all women and girls working in the Public service to attend and participate the International Women’s Day celebrations yesterday.
“I wish all our women and girls a happy International Women’s Day,” he said.
