one island one product

The RMI Government through the Ministry of Resources and Development have endorsed a new initiative to start this year 2017. The "One Island One Product" will be launched on the nations Constitution Day on May 1. The concept of this new project is to provide an opportunity to all islands in the RMI to participate in an annual event starting this year to showcase their "best product." This project will certainly provide opportunities and avenues to market each island best of the best in -- handicrafts, food, canoe buildings, etc- to the world. The project is keen to enhance the capabilities of our traditional skills to make these products "original' but at the same time allow creativity and innovation to a higher standard. Each Mayor and leadership of each island is responsible for submitting the names of participants and declare their best of the best product for this event. Each island will be allowed to sell and market their products.
