The situation at Asau

Re: About the Asau wharf editorial 

Absolutely agree with the article regarding deepening port in Savaii. Similar situations are in Vanuatu where the government is having difficulty with repayments to the Chinese lenders, Sri Lanka government has already defaulted in their loan and now the Chinese government controls the deep port for 99 years. 

Look what happened to South Chine sea situation? 

The PM knows that Samoa has a large debt over a billion tala to repay, so another several millions is nothing to him as you the people will pay this loan even your grandchildren! 

Strategic situation of countries such as USA, Australia and new Zealand shall not allow China to embed in Samoa. 

The fact is the tourist traffic would not be able to pay the fees imposed by the loan, thus economically enviable for your country, which I do love. Sekia Samoa!
