HONIARA (June 10, 1997 - PACNEWS) ---The United States Ambassador the Solomon Islands, Arma Jane Karaer, says she would like US business presence in the Melanesian country to grow.

The Port Moresby-based Ambassador says the investment by the Bank of Hawaii in the National Bank of the Solomon Islands has been a welcome first step.

Karaer was speaking at Government House during the presentation of her credentials to Governor General Sir Moses Pitakaka.

She said her country, through the Joint Commercial Commission, formed with the South Pacific Forum countries, has committed itself to facilitating expanded business ties between the United States and the Pacific Islands nations.

The JCC Secretariat is located at the East-West Center's Pacific Islands Development Program in Honolulu.
