Members of Parliament from around the region who are attending the 4th Pacific Women’s Parliamentary Partnership (P.W.P.P) Forum got a taste of Samoa on Monday.

The occasion was the welcoming ava ceremony organized by the Legislative Assembly held at Tuanaimato.

The ava ceremony preceded the keynote address from the Head of State, His Highness Tui Atua Tupua Tamasese Efi, to open the three day forum, which ends today.

The ava ceremony was attended by Cabinet Ministers and Members of Parliament including Deputy Prime Minister, Fiame Naomi Mata’afa. 

The annual Forum is organised by the Pacific Women’s Parliamentary Partnerships (P.W.P.P), supported by the Australian Government through its Pacific Women Shaping Pacific Development initiative.
