Three new modern office complexes will be built at Honiara, Noro and Auki under World Bank’s Phase two project.

Construction work on the three buildings is expected to start soon following the recent launching of the Pacific Regional Oceanscape Program for Economic Resilience (PROPER) in Honiara. 

Officials from the World Bank and the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources travelled to Noro and Auki to see the sites where the two new offices will be built and also meet with provincial government officials.

The Democratic Coalition Government for Advancement (DCGA) fully supports development in the fisheries sector as this in line with its development policy

The completion of these infrastructure projects will boost fisheries activities and also generate much needed revenue for the country.

The Noro office is a much awaited Monitoring, Control & Surveillance (MCS) Centre to effectively support fisheries compliance and enforcement activities of our tuna fisheries. On the same note, the Malaita office will enhance MFMR’s support for Malaita provincial fisheries activities including the proposed Bina Harbour Tuna Processing Plant (BHTPP) project. Moreover, the Honiara HQ extension office is the Ministry’s continuous drive to ensure an effective and conducive working environment is provided to its staff.

PROPER will be implemented over a period of five years ending in 2027.
