At what cost

Re: Siumu puts stop to foreign-owned businesses 

I agree with the alii and faipule of siumu. 

And they have every right to be concerned. 

Unfortunately the government has already set the pattern and it’ll be very hard to break from it now.

I have been back and fourth to Samoa in the past decade and have noticed how China has applied the old cheque book diplomacy with our little country. 

Beach Rd has never looked so flash and the new international terminal is also very pretty and we have a lot to thank the China government for.

However I’m a little worried about what the actual price for all this is going to be.
