“I wish to congratulate Federal Pacific Group for taking the leap of faith in its expansion plans, because it does come with many challenges,” said Maiava. 

“It is great to see Samoan companies in particular getting out into the region and it is also in line with the Governments’ challenge to the private sector to seek growth opportunities outside of Samoa.”

Federal Pacific Group has been involved in several commercial ventures in the Kingdom since 1994. 

Federal Pacific Insurance and Federal Pacific Finance which were established in Samoa in 1999, opened its doors for business in Tonga in 2004.

“We now operate in Samoa, Tonga, Cook Islands and Timor Leste and we have plans to move into other Pacific Islands in the near future.”
