Though diverse in culture and separated by the vast ocean, we are united under one national flag and today west and as one people of our many beautiful Islands to remember the birth of our nation 45 years ago.

On this day of 7 July 1978, 45 years ago we were vested with political freedom to governor own national affairs as a sovereign nation to determine our own destiny.

As we remember this day, let us take time to reflect on the sacrifices of our fonding fathers that guaranteed Solomon Islands, a country that is richly endowed with freedom, peace and harmony and abundant natural resources.

May we be reminded to embrace the Patriotism of our forefathers who handed us independence and let us keep this freedom close to our hearts as we stand united together in building our nation, Solomon Islands.

Despite, the challenges that these years has brought, more especially with the recent impacts from the pandemic on our economy and livelihood security, migration and forced displacement, loss of cultural identity, and other related risks, still our trust and confidence is in God.

Therefore, let us rejoice and be courageous, lifting up our eyes to the hill from whence our help cometh from the LORD, the marker of the heavens and the earth.

Let us take time to acknowledge our failures, embrace our successes and learn from our past with prayer, honouring God for his Grace, Love, Mercy and faithfulness in past years, throughout the year and into the future.

The Ministry of Rural Development is committed to deliver and support development in our rural areas to improve social and economic livelihood of all rural Solomon Islanders.

It is therefore our commitment to create job opportunities, establish small businesses, grow the rural economy and build basic infrastructure in our rural communities through our development programmes to alleviate poverty and improve livelihoods.

As such, fellow Solomon Islanders, as you celebrate this day, remember to reflect and celebrate with pride the countless gift of our independence, our freedom, and continue to thank God for the gift of life we have every day.

Let us strive to respect and pray for our leaders and fellow citizens as Christians.

Congratulations and Happy 45th Independence Anniversary Celebrations, Solomon Islands.

May the future bring joy, Peace,Progress and Success
