Vaovasa Lueli, Merchandiser and Sales representative of Ah Liki Wholesale stated, “I have learnt a lot this week and gained more knowledge about marketing concepts. The activities were enjoyable and I would definitely like to attend a similar training in the future”. 

Pacific Ezy Money Transfer Sales Executive, Tavai Meredith, found the workshop not only informative but also as a good way to network with other businesses “this training was a great opportunity, I loved the ideas that we exchanged and I look forward to implementing what I have learnt in my workplace”.

The Samoa Chamber of Commerce would like to acknowledge the development partners, NZMFAT and AUSDFAT, through the Samoa Education Sector Plan budget support to the NUS, as well as the SICTP Manager, So’oalo Sydney Faasau and his team for making this training possible.
