Solomons' government to encourage entrepreneurs through growth centres

4:19 pm on 28 November 2011

The Solomon Islands prime minister, Gordon Darcy Lilo, says his government intends establishing growth centres around the country to encourage investment and employment.

He says it's an old idea from the colonial days when the focus was on governance, but his government wants to take the idea further.

The Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation report Mr Lilo saying they'll put the growth centres in the highest population centres to create an environment where people can become entrepreneurs.
