The Asian Development Bank says Solomon Islands must focus on repairing infrastructure damage if it wants to recover from the recent floods.
The ADB's Country Economist for Solomon Islands Milovan Lucich says the bank is providig USD $200,000 for humanitarian and relief efforts but the real work is yet to begin.
"Key emphasis has to be on restoring connectivity of key infrastructure, particularly some of the key bridges and roads around the capital Honiara. That will be a key priority. We have had teams looking at the damage and assessing the plans going forward and so that will be announced later in the year."
