The major bilateral business event of the year, the 8th Australia Solomon Islands Business Forum, was held in Brisbane on 22nd July, 2016 at Hotel Jen in Brisbane. We thank would like to thank all attendees for their contribution to another successful event, including the wide range of Delegates from both Australia and Solomon Islands, our generous Sponsors who made this event possible and the expert speakers who provided an overview on economy, investment, taxation, business regulation, tourism, infrastructure, agriculture and resources.
This year, the Forum’s theme was “Continuing on the path to sustainable economic development” and was attended by over 120 delegates. We were honoured to have the Forum addressed by the Prime Minister of Solomon Islands, the Hon Manasseh Sogavare and the Australian Minister for International Development and the Pacific, Senator the Hon Concetta Fierravanti-Wells who announced a new $2.3 million four year partnership with the business community in Solomon Islands that will strengthen the role of women in the economy and importantly encourage more female business leaders.
