The Solomon Islands government says it is increasing its presence on the maritime border with Papua New Guinea with the construction of housing for border control officers in Choiseul Province.

Ten houses have been funded by AusAID in partnership with the government within the premises of the Taro Police Station.

Choiseul Province lies between the autonomous Papua New Guinea island of Bougainville and Santa Isabel in western Solomon Islands.
