Launch of the new Development Bank of Solomon Islands (BBSI)
The DCGA, led by Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare, today launched the new DBSI, fulfilling an election promise.
The aim of the DBSI is to ensure that the people in the rural areas and SMEs have access to credit or capital to start up their own businesses.
The Government now expects the DBSI to offer and provide sustainable financial services to all Solomon Islanders in particular in the development of the rural areas, micro, small and medium enterprises, and commerce and industry, and very much hopes the DBSI will take the lead in providing development finance throughout the country.
The Government is deserving praise for fulfilling the promise to re-start the DBSI and one must hope it will serve the people and help in improving the national economy while aiding the livelihoods of all those who use its services.
