HEAR UP TO DATE INFORMATION ON TRADE, BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES AND CURRENT EVENTS IN SOLOMON ISLANDS.
The Australian government has committed to the Solomon Islands Infrastructure Program (SIIP) as a AUD250 million program over 10 years and a new local content strategy has been developed. A hydroelectricity project is under construction with an associated Australian funded transmission line. Additional sectoral opportunities include services, tourism development, sustainable forestry, agri-industry and fisheries. It is also a good time for mining services companies to be positioning themselves for possible growth in the mining sector in gold, nickel and bauxite. Construction of the Coral Sea undersea fibre-optic communications cable completed in 2019 has improved business connectivity between Australia and Solomon Islands. The economy is slowly recovering from the impact of Covid-19 related border closures aided by a strong pipeline of infrastructure projects to be developed over the next 5 years. In addition to providing key information about prospective business opportunities, the Forum brings together key business and government representatives from Australia and Solomon Islands and provides a unique opportunity for networking and exploring business opportunities.
Bookings for a trade table and for advertising in the delegates handbook are available upon request. Please contact the secretariat on lillian @ australiapacificbusiness.org.au to enquire about availability.
