HONIARA, Solomon Islands (SIBC, Aug. 20) - Japan's Senior Vice
Minister for Foreign Affairs Tetsuro Yano is to arrive in Honiara Thursday for a
brief visit.

The Embassy of Japan in Honiara confirmed that during his visit,
Yano will meet Prime Minister Allan Kemakeza and other leaders to strengthen the
relationship between Japan and Solomon Islands.

The visit is also to review the situation in the country since
the arrival of the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands last month.

Yano will also attend the opening of People First Network's
expanded Internet cafe in Honiara.

The expansion was made possible through a grant contract worth
nearly $558,000 from the Embassy of Japan's Grassroots Assistance scheme.

Yano will also visit the UNDP/ILO Community Infrastructure
Rehabilitation Project site at Alligator Creek, East Guadalcanal, which is
funded by Japan through the UN Trust Fund for Human Security.
