Solomon Islands plans to set up an office in London next year.

The foreign minister, Milner Tozaka has revealed this in Honiara following his recent visit to London to discuss with officials from the British foreign office the idea of setting up a Solomon Islands office.

Since independence from Britain in 1978, Solomon Islands has had no representation in Britain but maintained relations through the office at the European Union in Brussels.

Britain has a High Commission in Honiara.

The 2016 Solomons budget has an allocation of 120,000 US dollars towards the setting up of the London office.
