East Timor donates a half million to MSG

East Timor has donated half a million US dollars to the secretariat of the Melanesian Spearhead Group.

Prime Minister Xanna Gusmao presented the grant in Vanuatu this week, in return for the MSG granting East Timor observer status earlier this year.

Radio New Zealand reports that the money will pay for the salary and other expenses for an economic advisor at the secretariat.
