Participants of the workshop are from different provinces across the country.

Speaking at the opening of the workshop today, the Ambassador for Taiwan Embassy, George Chan, said the workshop is aiming to improve skills and knowledge of pig farming.

Mr. Chan said that the despite various livestock development projects that have started in Solomon Islands, raising pigs remains one of successful livestock activities in the country.

"This is because of the importance pigs have in the Melanesian culture and Solomons tradition," he stated.

"As you are all aware, pigs are a token of wealth, tributes of compensation, cooperation and reconciliation, and gifts for wedding ceremonies, festivals and funerals as well for consumption but more importantly, pigs are animals which boost cash income and create more working chances in rural areas," Mr. Chan said.
