HONIARA, Solomon Islands (Solomon Star, May 7, 2009) – Construction of the proposed new Gizo hospital is one of the priorities the Western Provincial Government will undertake this year.

Western Province premier Alex Lokopio said he and his delegation will discuss the issue with appropriate authorities while in Honiara this week.

Japan will fund the hospital.

Mr Lokopio said this is one of the priority projects his government is pursuing.

He said construction will start when land issue is sorted out with the Ministry of Lands in Honiara.

The new hospital will be constructed opposite the current one, which suffered significant damages during the 2007 earthquake and tsunami.
