The Chief of the Defence Force, General David Hurley, has congratulated the Solomon Islands Government and the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI) for their decade-long efforts in helping to build the capacity of the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) and enabling development of the Solomon Islands Government.
General Hurley said the people of Solomon Islands had embraced RAMSI and the military personnel, police and civilians from Australia, New Zealand, Tonga, and Papua New Guinea.
"RAMSI has established a new model to work through complex security situations with our regional partners and across government. The 10th anniversary of RAMSI operations shows the Pacific Island region that Australia and its neighbours are committed to long-term stability in the region."
General Hurley said the anniversary also provided an opportunity to recognise that security in Solomon Islands has improved allowing the military mission to draw to an end.
