The National Government has advised the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands, RAMSI, to ensure its achievements are sustained into the future.

In his recent speech to farewell the outgoing RAMSI special coordinator Nicholas Coppel, Acting Prime Minister Manasseh Maelanga said, a lot has been said about the varying level of achievements with RAMSI’s assistance “but the underlining fact remains that these achievements must be sustained for many more years to come.”

“The Government has commissioned an independent Review Team to review these RAMSI work and achievements to assist the government in terms of resource allocation, moving forward,” said Mr Maelanga.

Mr Maelanga stressed that whilst a lot of positive long term milestones have been achieved; continuing to maintain this goal is a must for other relevant sectors.

“The true success lies in how fifteen neighbouring countries continue to avail their men and women of varying skills and abilities to intervene and help a neighbour in need.”
