The Makira provincial government says it's aligning its policies to that of the Solomon Islands' national government.
This comes as newly-elected premier of Makira, Julian Makaa, made a courtesy visit to Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare in Honiara.
Mr Makaa said there were many challenges facing his provincial government to provide public services in Makira.
But he said the only way forward was to align his government's actions with the policies of the national government.
In response, Mr Sogavare reaffirmed his government's commitment to work together with the Makira Provincial Executive for the delivery of much needed development.
