Samoa Observer says thank you Mr Ambassador Xuefeng, Madam Xing
Ambassador Wang Xuefeng,
Madam Tong Xin,
Members of the Media,
Greetings to you all.
Let me begin by saying this is a very special day for us all here at the Samoa Observer.
It is special, since today, we are celebrating history being made, right here at the Samoa Observer, premises.
And this historical event I am talking about here, as you are now all aware, is the launching of the Chinese language version of the book of short stories, titled “Our Heritage, the Ocean.”
Published originally in the English language, the book is made up of stories written by Pacific Islands authors, as well as other submitted by New Zealand, and Australian writers.
And now that the stories that make up “Our Heritage, the Ocean”, have been translated into the Chinese Language, with financial assistance from His Excellency, Ambassador Wang Xuefang, and First Secretary, Madam Tong Xin, it is with humility that I say:
Thank you very much.
Indeed, I am of the view that the decision to have the book translated into the Chinese language, with the idea of making it available to the Chinese readership both in China and elsewhere, is decidedly an honourable one to always remember and cherish.
