Solomons to Attend Disability Forum

Solomon Islands will be represented at the Pacific Disability Forum in Samoa next week.

President of People with Disability Solomon Islands, Savina Nongebatu says people with Disabilities Associations from all forum island country members will attend the conference.

Ms. Nongebatu says the conference is an important one as they will be looking at how far governments have lived up to the undertakings they had signed relating to disability issues.

She says the main issue they will be discussing at the conference is the convention of the rights of people with disabilities.

Ms. Nongebatu and her personal assistant Cyrene Aonima leave Honiara today for Samoa to attend the conference.
