The Trade and Cultural Show which opened in Solomon Islands capital Honiara this week has been described as a great success.

The chairman of the Show Committee, Douglas Strahan says despite a difficult start for the organisers, the show has been successful beyond their expectations.

He says business houses have responded well and shown their confidence in the economic recovery and the improving law and order situation.

Mr Strahan says this year's theme of Tolerance, Co-existence and Peace is a reflection of Solomon Islanders wish for a better future.
