Samoa Observer to launch Samoan language paper

1:13 pm on 23 August 2010

A Samoan language newspaper is to be launched by Samoa Observer Newspaper Group this week.

The new publication will come out three days a week, on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.

The company has unsuccessfully tried to launch a Samoan language newspaper in the past, but the editor in chief, Savea Sano Malifa, says it's time to try again.

He says the paper, to be called Talanoa, aims to promote and preserve the Samoan language.
