THE Solomon Islands has introduced online registration for business applicants at the Business Registry. Launched last week with a new look, Company Haus website caters to online applications for foreign investment licenses and business name registrations. The launch was made possible by the joint efforts of the Ministry of Commerce, Industries, Labour & Immigration (MCILI) and the Asia Development Bank (ADB) with support from the Australian and New Zealand governments as co-financers of ADB’s Pacific Private Sector Development Initiative (PSDI). The online service is a huge boost and will save business applicants the usual time and travel constraints.
Solomon Islands Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chair Jay Bartlett said the achievement was a very important milestone for the growth and enhancement of the business sector.
