Solomon Islands Minister for Provincial Government and Constituency Development Japhet Waipora says the Solomon Islands government is seeking foreign investors to develop Renbel Province's Lake Tegano into an international holiday resort for tourists.

Mr Waipora says that the World Heritage site and scenic site in the Rennell and Bellona Province has great potential to be developed.

He says they hope Taiwan's Ocean Resort company would be interested in setting up a similar resort in Solomon Islands.
