Quoting the Solomon Star newspaper – 26 January 2020
“GOVERNOR General Rt Rev. Sir David Vunagi has acknowledged the United States commitment to Solomon Islands development aspirations over four decades since the formal establishment of diplomatic relations on the 9th of October 1978, Solomon Islands and the United States.
“Speaking on the occasion of the presentation of credentials by her Excellency Mrs. Erin Elizabeth McKee Ambassador of the United States to the Solomon Islands at the government house this week, Sir Vunagi said the United States relations have flourished, reflecting on increasing engagements, in security, economic sector and people to people interactions in over four decades since the formal establishment of diplomatic relations.
“The USAID active engagement to increase its work programs and support transformative projects and the inclusion of Solomon Islands into the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) threshold program is a positive step.
“These are initiatives that will lead to attracting genuine foreign investment and development into Solomon Islands,’’ he said.”
