Re: Father cautions against rising number of Asian businesses



Samoans should concentrate on business and services related to tourists, export, and aspects of Samoan culture, food and customs, which foreign-born immigrants do not yet understand. 

Any immigrant can open a store to sell imported goods but only a Samoan can make good koko alaisa or palusami, explain the meaning behind a pe’a or weave a fine mat!
