The Minister of Finance and Treasury, the Hon Snyder Rini, announced this in Parliament this morning when presenting the 2017 Supplementary Appropriation Bill 2017 to the House at the Second Reading Stage.
Minister Rini said the GDP growth rate this year is owed to the sustained levels of production in the logging sector.
