As an example of what His Excellency reported, I can confirm that the recent visit to Honiara by the UK Dionysus Ensemble to give music education and instrument instructions to the young musicians of the Solomon Islands Piano Association was made possible through the assistance of the Commonwealth Institute.

The Solomon Islands is an important and valued member of the Commonwealth of which Her Majesty the Queen is the Head. The role of the Solomon Islands in the Commonwealth was further highlighted most recently by His Royal Highness Prince Charles.

As His Excellency the High Commissioner told the Prime Minister, “The world is waiting but opportunities that exist are being missed.”

Yours sincerely

Frank Short
