Ten students from the National University of Samoa and two nominees selected by the Samoa Observer will be travelling to China for the first time this week.
This is the first cultural tour of its kind for N.U.S., an initiative from the Chinese Ambassador Wang Xuefeng with the hopes of familiarising students from Samoa with China.
The tour will also be an opportunity to promote Samoa through such visit.
The group will be in China for ten days.
The ten travelling students are Philton Solomona and London Leuma (Faculty of Education), Daniel Faletoese (Faculty of Applied Sciences – Nursing and Health Sciences), Stallar Tauiliili (Faculty of Applied Sciences – Maritime Training), Tupalu Auelua (Faculty of Applied Sciences), Siusiuosalafai Papalii Oloigogo (Faculty of Arts), Amuolemoana Meredith (Faculty of Business and Entrepreneurship), Taila Charlotte Johnston (Faculty of Medicine), Roya Ieremia (Faculty of Science), Rachel Tominiko (Centre of Samoan Studies).
