“I look forward to taking our economic cooperation to the next level. But we know our nations are bonded by far more than trade, we have a special connection that is built on a foundation of culture, history and memory found only here in the Pacific”
Those were the sentiments shared by the Prime Minister, Hon. Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama when delivering speech at the welcome reception and dinner for the Samoan Prime Minister, Hon. Tuilaepa Aiono Sailele Malielegaoi.
“As Commonwealth members, as champions on climate change and oceans preservation, as committed partners in
regional security and development, our successes are collective, and our future is shared.”
The Prime Minister believes that this portrays the nations commitment to each others success and an ever-lasting bond of friendship between Government and peoples of the Independent State of Samoa and the Republic of Fiji.
