Dear Editor,

Re: Brexit: What does in mean for Samoa

A country like Samoa with a population of less than 200,000 people will never be badly disadvantaged by events happening on the other side of the world.

In fact, having Brexit is a blessing in disguise for Samoa because we now have more opportunities to get more foreign aid - it’s one of the building blocks of Samoa’s government. 

Maybe the Commonwealth Secretariat will also get more funds and then they will properly address the shortcomings of N.P.O in Samoa. 

The possibilities are endless, one thing’s for sure though is that the majority of foreign aid are from governments around the region like China, Japan, New Zealand, Australia and foreign loans from regional banking institutions like A.D.B. 

So Samoa is pretty safe to say the least, don’t forget also the hundreds of millions of dollars in remittances every year from Samoans overseas so everything will be A OK for Stui and his gang of politicians - except Lautafi Fio Purcell, he is a God fearing Christian and the only white rose of the bunch.
