The Central Bank of Solomon Islands released a report revealing the economy lost $227 million due to the civil unrest, according to freelance journalist Georgina Kekea.

Violent protests broke out in the Solomon Islands earlier this week with calls from citizens for Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare to resign from his position as leader.

“It will take at least about a year for businesses to recover,” Ms Kekea told Sky News Australia.

“It’s a big loss; almost a thousand people have lost their jobs, especially with the destruction of buildings.”
