Building the capacity of the private sector

PR - The Samoa Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with the Samoa In-country Training Programme of the Oloamanu Centre for Professional Development and Continuing Education of N.U.S., hosted three trainings over the month of April – Basic Marketing and Communication, Advanced Marketing and Communication and Basic Accounting for Non Accountants.

The Marketing and Communication trainings were delivered by Susan Piket of Barbican Training Centre in New Zealand from 9-12 April and the 16-20 April. 

Thirty three participants from various businesses took part in the training and many gave positive feedback on the material covered and content of the training. 

One of the key areas of business highlights the importance of marketing services and products and this training allowed participants to learn more about concepts and approaches on marketing and communication effectively.

The Basic Accounting for Non Accountants training was held from 23-27 April at the Hotel Elisa Conference room and was delivered by Tuiloma Sina Retzlaff of Pacific Global Solutions. 

There were 25 participants who successfully completed this workshop and the feedback proved that the training was very helpful in their line of work.

The Samoa Chamber of Commerce C.E.O. Lemauga Hobart Vaai congratulated the participants on completing the course, encouraging each individual to utilize the knowledge gained from the training.

The Samoa Chamber of Commerce would like to acknowledge our development partners, NZ MFAT and AUS DFAT, through the Samoa Education Sector Plan budget support to the NUS, as well as the SICTP Manager, So’oalo Sydney Faasau and his team for making this training possible.
