A new magazine has been launched in Samoa with young professionals both in Samoa and abroad as its target audience.

The name of the magazine -- Tapu -- signals that no issue will be forbidden to it, says its editor-in-chief, Fatu Tauafiafi.

Tauafiafi says the magazine aims to inform young professionals about events in Samoa in order to attract them home.

Niue, where his wife comes from, is also a focus, as are New Zealand and Australia where he says there are many people hungry for news.
