Methodius Iapara from Solomon Islands presented a shell money about 2 meters long to Chief Blaise Iruinu. The Shell money a traditional money for Solomon Islanders especially Malaita province but also use in parts of Bougainville. He gave him as a token of appreciation and on behalf of the team also as a sign of good will and power to the Melanesian brothers & sisters of Bougainville.

Bougainvilleans who attended the four days conference told me they learned a lot from the brothers and sisters of the other Melanesians countries, because we have the same problem in our countries.

I was so glad to meet with this team of Melanesian brothers and sisters who I found them to be an inspirational team, I hope I will see them again while trying to save our Island countries in a small way we can for the betterment of our future children and their children to come.
