Message from the Minister of Finance
Congratulations Gatoaitele Savea Sano Malifa, Muliaga Jean Malifa and the entire staff at the Samoa Observer on reaching a major milestone.
Forty years is no easy accomplishment and it’s a huge achievement – you have all done well and it’s a successful business story. The Samoa Observer has become the main print media in Samoa over that time.
I would welcome more investigative journalism and reporting based on sound research to better inform our people about what government, businesses, the churches and our communities can do to build a peaceful, secure and prosperous future for all Samoa. We want our people to be excited about our future, excited about living in Samoa.
I think that turning out a daily newspaper is commendable. It’s certainly not easy but it’s a good thing because our people need to be kept well informed in order to contribute to a better Samoa for everyone, especially our future generation.
