It is pleasing to read that the government wants to boost tourism numbers and build the airport in the Western Province, but I think they are quoting old numbers as far as tourism goes. 15,000? Last year after the riot the number of tourists coming to the Solomons was only 400 (REAL tourists). They want 30,000 to come? The infrastructure will not be able to handle that yet. They are thinking in the right direction, but they need to do their homework on the numbers!
