The Samoa government says Australian Governor General, Quentin Bryce, will visit the country next week as part of a Pacific tour that also includes Nauru, Kiribati, Tuvalu, Solomon Islands and New Caledonia.

Ms Bryce will address Samoa's parliament and call on Samoa's head of state, Tui Atua Tupua Tamasese Efi.

Her two days in Samoa has also been scheduled for a visit to SENESE, a school for people with disabilities, meetings with the Prime Minister and a tour of the new police station which has been built with assistance from AusAID.
