4th Joint Samoa Economic Talks underway

APIA, SAMOA — The inter-Samoa talks on economic cooperation commence Monday morning at the Tanoa Tusitala Hotel.

 

The Apia meeting follows last years’ discussions in American Samoa on 17-18 December 2015.

 

That meeting discussed a range of key commercial issues relating to the business environment of the two countries and the Apia meeting this week is an opportunity for both sides to provide updates on those matters, as well as make progress on streamlining these issues into a possible Free Trade arrangement.

It’s tempting not to wear a life jacket while on the water, especially on nice days. You want to get some sun, you think you’ll get too hot, or you think you’re a strong swimmer. But whether you’re going fishing or just enjoying a ride on the boat, there’s never an excuse not to wear a life jacket. You can have a great time, while choosing to always wear a life jacket and boating responsibly.

Pacific Ocean swallows villages and five Solomon Islands

As the ocean rose, they had to flee.

"The sea has started to come inland, it forced us to move up to the hilltop and rebuild our village there away from the sea," said Sirilo Sutaroti, 94, a leader of the Paurata tribe, to a group of Australian environmental scientists.

The scene of this rising sea is an archipelago of upthrust volcanoes and coral atolls, which dots the Pacific to the northeast of Australia: the Solomon Islands. There, a swollen sea is claiming the shoreline - and even, researchers say, entire masses of land.
