Dear Editor,

please allow me space in your letter to view out my concern on the rapid population growth experienced in our country over the last decade which was announced by the Minister of Finance and Treasury. It is shocking to see such a small country like the Solomon Islands rapidly exploding its population, however with minimum services to support the huge populace. The question is, with this steady but fast phase of population growth, what will the Solomon Islands be in 10 to 20 years times if the services provided by the Government and those available for the people remain constant or unchanged?
