SOLOMONS BEEF UP AUDITOR’S BUDGET

MELBOURNE, Australia (Radio Australia, Oct. 30) – The Solomon Islands government is increasing its budget allocation to the Auditor General's Office in an effort to improve the government's accountability.

The increase is reflected in the government's strategic economic plan 2004, released today.

The increase, government says, is to help improve government transparency and accountability.

The report reveals the Auditor General's Office has been badly funded in the past, not allowing it to perform its duties.

The report says the auditing of government accounts has been behind for the last five years.
