SI GOVT URGED TO SUPPORT THE AID AND NAVIGATION UNIT
Quoting the Solomon Star newspaper – 11 July 2018
“THE Government is urged to pump in more support to the Aid and Navigation Unit within the Solomon Islands Maritime Safety Administration.
“This is necessary as part of its investment in tourism because most tourists are coming into the country by ships.
“The Aid and Navigation Unit’s director Patrick Wamahe expressed these sentiments in an interview with the Solomon Star.
“He said the recent partnership with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism on a planned cruise boat visit this November at Marau, east Guadalcanal, is one of the fine examples why the government needs to consider supporting his department.
“The passage at Marau is a fine destination for tourism but lacks proper navigational equipment guides,” Mr Wamahe said.”
