SHORTLANDS PATROL BASE MOVES A STEP CLOSER TO REALITY
The National Governments plan to build a patrol boat base at Shortland Island in the Western Province has moved another step closer following the signing of a joint resolution to allow the project to proceed.
This week, key representatives from the FAMOA Trust Board and local Land Owning groups signed a joint resolution that gave the green light for a portion of land at Lofung to host the project.
The joint resolution has now settled outstanding issues that contested the portion of land, which has affected progress following initial discussions in February this year between FAMOA Chiefs and Landowning groups.
