Taiwan has given Solomon Islands just over 300,000 US dollars towards a cattle rehabilitation programme.

The Solomons prime minister, Manasseh Sogavare, says the funding will enable rural dwellers to partake in development by running their own cattle projects.

He says this will improve their livelihoods and boost the national economy.
