Research and Consultancy in Solomon Islands
Consultancy services are available in the Solomon Islands, stemming from both domestic and foreign origins but over a narrow range of sectors. The Pacific Islands Consulting Group, a consultancy firm with its origins in the Solomon Islands, specialises in professional services and development consulting throughout Melanesia. It has been contracted by various organisations, including the Solomon Islands Government, the World Bank, and the New Zealand Agency for International Development (NZAID) to conduct a range of projects, such as programme designing, conservation research and resource management. The ‘big four’ professional services firms have a varying presence in the country and are often contracted by government or international organisations to carry out various projects.
