The role of Christian institutions in the Solomon Islands has long been the very fabric of society and recent Easter celebrations gave witness to many examples the church plays in moderating and influencing lives for the betterment of citizens in accordance with Christian teaching and principles.
From what I read recently, Minister Manetoali said his Ministry last year hosted the Head of Churches symposium and entered into a Communique agreeing to jointly and collectively to advance the betterment of all citizens.
He said a partnership policy framework is also soon to be finalized.
He mentioned deriving the essential roles of the ecclesiastical institutions in the country, has in fact exemplified the spirit of partnership envisaged in the theme of this year’s national budget.
Minister Manetoali added as a result his Ministry in 2020 hosted the Head of Churches symposium and entered into a Communique agreeing to jointly and collectively advance the betterment of all citizens.
The Minister also highlighted that his Ministry had been very instrumental in the enabling environment approach to social and economic development in this country.
“Providing this pathway for social and economic development is not a straightforward formula, Minister Manetoali reportedly commented.
I would politely request the Hon Minister to enlarge in ‘plain speak’ just what the proposed policy framework will bring about when finalized.
The betterment of all citizens is something I would gladly like to see but how and what is the mind to achieve the objectives?
