Your Highness,

As you take office as Head of State of the Independent State of Samoa, I would like to express warm congratulations and best wishes to Your Highness on behalf of the Chinese Government and people, and in my own name.

Recent years have witnessed good momentum in the development of China-Samoa relations, as evidenced by frequent exchanges at high-level and all other levels, constantly deepening political mutual trust and fruitful interactions and cooperation across the board. China-Samoa relations have set an example for China’s friendly and cooperative relations with Pacific Island countries.

I attach great importance to our bilateral ties and stand ready to work with you to push China-Samoa Strategic Partnership to a new high, so as to better benefit our two countries and peoples.

Yours sincerely,


Xi Jinping

President of the People’s 

Republic of China
