Solomon Star, a daily newspaper in the Solomon Islands, celebrated its 25th anniversary last Friday May 25th.The publisher and director of Solomon Star Company, John Lamani, stated that while the paper can now look forward to a brighter future, it did not come without its fair share of challenges. Mr Lamani stated that there are times when grueling conditions, not conducive to making business, arise. He cited the ethnic error as one of the most difficult times.
Guest of Honour at the celebration Governor General Sir Nathaniel Waena praised Solomon Star Company and its hardworking staff for what he described as an excellent job in providing a medium of communication in sharing information to the public of Solomon Islands.
He says it is only when the country is well informed that its leaders and people are in a position to make better decisions.
The Solomon Star Newspaper is one of the few Newspapers within the Pacific region that is locally owned and managed.
