Samoan discussions

Saturday, October 20, 2007

Whilst in the Pacific region on Ministerial business, Meg met the current Prime Minister of Samoa, Tuilaepa Lupesoliai Sailele Malielegaoi. They discussed the problems in Fiji and the Solomon Islands, and the development of a new economic agreement for trade with the European Union.

 

The Prime Minister assumed office in November 1998, having been first elected to Parliament in 1980. He is an economist, being the first Samoan to get a Masters Degree. He used to work for the European Economic Community and Coopers & Lybrand.

 

Samoa is a country of around 250,000 inhabitants situated in the western part of the Samoan Islands archipelago in the South Pacific Ocean. At independence in 1962, Samoa signed a Treaty with New Zealand meaning that Samoa can request that New Zealand act as a channel of communication to governments and international organizations outside the immediate area of the Pacific islands. Samoa can also request defence assistance which New Zealand is required to consider, as Samoa does not maintain military forces.
