Chinese and their Samoan connections

Dear Editor, 

Re: Chinese businesses in Samoa

Most of those “foreign owned businesses” have Samoan business partners and also employ many Samoans.

Whilst I agree that the villages should be allowed to keep their own rules and ban foreign owned businesses if they want, I also strongly believe that Samoans should learn from the Chinese work ethic and compete. I have never met a Chinese who was not a hard worker. I honestly have not. Not even on TV.

These Chinese are Samoa’s “secret weapon” to take on Fiji and their Indians in the economic stakes.
