Happy 44th Independence Anniversary Celebrations
Independence Day is both an occasion to celebrate, and to remember the struggles and sacrifices of our forefathers who fought to give us this gift of Sovereignty! Tribute to their wisdom and heartfelt passion for us to be one Nation, one people.
In commemoration of this auspicious occasion, let us all acknowledge and appreciate our contributions as legislators, policymakers, development partners, provincial governments, public servants, community leaders, Churches, stakeholders and as citizens of the Solomon Islands, in progressing our country over the last 44 years.
MPGIS endeavours to foster its institutional strengthening machineries to enhancing good governance and development aspirations towards the socio-economic well-being of our citizens. On this note, the Ministry acknowledges the efforts and commitment of the 9 provinces in ensuring accountability and transparency in providing essential services in our rural Solomon Islands.
May we all prioritize what we can do for our Happy Isles to make it a place of wealth, peace and prosperity.
A blessed 44th Independence Anniversary Celebrations to one and all.
God Bless Solomon Islands from Shore to Shore.
