9:25 am on 3 July 2006

RAMSI's special Coordinator in Solomon Islands, James Batley, has congratulated the organisers of Techmart 2006 in Honiara and the local businesses taking part in it.

Inspecting the displays at the trade fair organised by the Small and Medium Enterprises Council of Solomon Islands, Mr Batley said he was struck by the variety of local products from around the country, and also by the enthusiasm of the people who were demonstrating and explaining the products on display.

Mr Batley said Techmart 2006 should demonstrate to Solomon Islanders that they had many resources at their disposal including creative and enterprising people who are prepared to work hard in local business.
