Locals need to be business savvy

303 Hits

Dear Editor,


The issue of fa’alavelave being the cause of breakdowns in Samoan businesses is not a legitimate reason to blame local businesses failing. 

Business owners should know that the fundamentals of running a business do not involve appeasing to the over-indulgence of fa’alavelave. 

Local owners need to become more business savvy to be able to compete with Asian businesses coming into town. 

And yes, the joining up of locals is a great initiative to get it started.
