Demand grows for Samoa products in NZ

2:07 pm on 24 July 2014

The Samoa Association of Manufacturers and Exporters is setting up a permanent trade presence in New Zealand after last year's successful Buy Samoa Made trade show.

The Samoa Observer reports that the Association will establish an exhibition centre at the Samoan Fale house in Auckland.

Its President, Tagaloa Eddie Wilson, says the most compelling feedback they received at last year's show was that market consumers wanted a permanent presence of Samoa products in New Zealand.

The Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Trade, Fonotoe Pierre Lauofo, says the exhibition project is an important initiative by the private sector.

The trade exhibition will launch on August the 4th.
