The University of the South Pacific will today hold an official ground-breaking ceremony for its new campus in Solomon Islands.
The project in Honiara is made possible with a loan of $US15.4 million from the Asian Development Bank.
The new campus would have enhanced ICT-based education with upgraded ICT equipment.
Some key features of the new building include facilities, such as a fully digitised library.
The launch will be attended by the Solomon Islands prime minister Manasseh Sogavare and the president of the ADB Takehiko Nakao.
It comes four years after a lease for the site was signed and work had been expected to start.
