The Samoa Chamber of Commerce and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade will be hosting the New Zealand Samoa Trade and Investment Commission (N.Z.S.T.I.C) Business Mission to Samoa on the 5th – 6th of June 2017.
Talking about the mission, Chairman of N.Z.S.T.I.C, Frank Po Ching, said it is all about building strong relationships between Samoa and New Zealand.
“N.Z.S.T.I.C’s mission is to facilitate and promote business and investment activities between Samoa and New Zealand, by building strong relationships between private and public sectors in both countries,” he said.
“These business missions therefore are fundamental in encouraging collaboration and strategic alliance. There is an exchange of business expertise and knowledge that goes both ways.”
The Business mission will kick off with a Business Forum on Monday 5th June at Tanoa Conference Room with Business Matching and one on one meetings on Tuesday 6th June.
“The business delegation this year although a smaller number than last years mission, has a slightly broader industry representation.”
“Of the nine NZ companies represented, three of which have capacity-building focus in different industries.”
“Whilst we would like to see more investment representation on these missions, it really comes down to building strategic and robust relationships.”
