“Out of the SBD $2,236,159 fund under the Ministry of Tourism, SBD$1.9 Million has been allocated to the tourism ministry in Western Province,” said Hon Mesepitu.
From that fund, SBD $480,000 has been used to purchase a new rubbish compactor from suppliers George Wu Company, he said.
“So that is good news for my division as the rubbish compactor will be given to the State Division of Gizo Town Council in which they will look after it to help clean up the town,” he added.
