Tokelau says it can benefit economically from a formal trading and shipping link with American Samoa.

Tokelau Ulu or Leader, Pio Tuia, has a positive outlook at the end of a two day visit to Pago Pago where he held talks with Governor Togiola Tulafono and the House of Representatives.

The government ship, the MV Sili, which makes a trip every quarter to Swains, would be used to implement the plan.
