Building code bill passes OEK
Gets no endorsement from Chamber
By: L.N. Reklai
(Koror, Palau) A bill to establish building standards in the Republic of Palau passed both houses of OEK and sent to President Remengesau for his action, gets no approval from the Palau Chamber of Commerce.
Palau Chamber of Commerce in its letter of recommendation to President Remengesau states that it does not endorse this version of the bill to establish building codes. The letter cites that the wording of the bill is confusing, ineffective and “hampers the OEK’s laudable efforts to create these much needed standards”.
