USP builds campus in Solomon Islands

10:29 am on 24 August 2017

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.
