New Zealand’s Foreign Minister, Murray McCully is visiting Samoa this week.
McCuly will meet Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi and members of his Cabinet.
“My discussions with Prime Minister Tuilaepa and the Government of Samoa will cover a range of matters including renewable energy, New Zealand’s support to Samoa’s tourism sector and New Zealand’s Pacific Sporting Partnerships Programme,” McCully said.
“New Zealand and Samoa have a special relationship, anchored by the Treaty of Friendship and underpinned by our strong economic, political and cultural links.”
The visit will also provide the opportunity to participate in the ground breaking for the Fuluasou Hydropower plant, which New Zealand helped fund along with the ADB, the EU and the Government of Samoa.
While in Samoa Minister McCully will also meet with private sector representatives about economic development opportunities.
