The cooperation between China and Samoa has brought tangible benefits to the two peoples. 

I appreciate the efforts Your Honorable has made for the development of China-Samoa relations over the past years. The Chinese side attaches great importance to the bilateral relations and stands ready to work together with the Samoan side to deepen the friendly exchanges and mutually beneficial cooperation and push forward the strategic partnership between our two counties to achieve more new results.
