Visit to Solomon Islands

  • Media release

Tomorrow I will travel to Honiara to meet members of the newly elected Solomon Islands Government.

I look forward to engaging with Prime Minister Jeremiah Manele, Foreign Minister Peter Shanel Agovaka, and other Cabinet ministers to listen to their priorities and discuss our shared vision for the bilateral relationship.

The Australian Government is pleased to have supported the delivery of safe and secure elections in Solomon Islands and remains committed to supporting Solomon Islands’ economic, development and security priorities.

I will visit Mbokona Community High School to see how Australian investment is strengthening education outcomes in Solomon Islands, and meet with Pacific Australia Labour Mobility (PALM) scheme workers to hear about the economic opportunities PALM is bringing to Solomon Islands.  

Australia is a steadfast partner for the Solomon Islands, and is building on our strong economic partnership, focused on infrastructure, jobs and growth.

I look forward to holding productive talks with the new Solomon Islands Government about how we can work together to promote stability, prosperity and security in our shared region.
