Committee continues work on agenda for Samoa talks
While no new date on the inter Samoa talks was announced during last week’s cabinet meeting, Gov. Lolo Matalasi Moliga did tell directors who are members of the ASG committee on the talks, to continue to work with their counterparts in Samoa to put together a firm agenda on issues for American Samoa, before the two-Samoa summit is convened.
“I know our counterparts are very aggressive in their approach but we do our things the same usual way we conduct business,” Lolo said, adding, “We let our committee handle the decisions. So let us know the agenda before we come together to meet before we leave for Samoa.”
The inter Samoa talks were originally set for this week in Apia, but American Samoa requested to have them moved to Dec. 5 and 6 due to the local Farm Fair that was held Tuesday and Wednesday this week in the Territory.
