Solomon Islands Australia Partnership’s Strongim Bisnis is an economic development initiative to increase economic opportunities and participation for people and businesses in Solomon Islands.

Position summary and justification for the role

This assignment involves a thorough study of the logistics system in the Solomon Islands to identify the existing pathways for the transportation of specific raw material commodities from the producers in the sectors that Strongim Business is working in (cocoa, coconut, plantation timber, horticultural produce and livestock) to buyers and local markets located in the main economic centres of Honiara, Auki, Gizo and Munda/Noro.
