An idea to consider
Re: Government reveals mini market plan
Here is a proposal for the government.
Why not build strip malls across the islands to invite tourist to shop all over the islands? It helps vendors save money from commuting to Apia each day.
I believe those who can sell goods within five minutes of commute would rather stay at their local area if provided with the opportunity to save money on gas or bus fare.
The government can take the responsibilities to promote all these market to tourists. For some of us in Apia, we would rather take a ride across our island to shop at different villages or community while take in the beauty of our island.
It also keep youth from getting into trouble when they are send to town to shop.
