The Press Secretariat would like to inform the public that the amount of $40,000.00 publicised as financial assistance for Samoa Touch Rugby was incorrect. Please be advised that the correct amount, as approved by Cabinet, is $20,000.00 for Samoa Touch Rugby’s campaign for the 2015 Federation of International Touch Rugby World Cup. The error is regretted.

“This is a huge milestone not only for Samoa but for our Pacific Islands men and women who are educated and have the opportunity to gain Australian standards, skills and qualifications, giving them a very wide benefit of education and careers in the Pacific,” said the Prime Minister.

Samoa has taken the lead in the establishment of a pioneering project in the region addressing the reintegration of criminal deportees or ‘returnees’ from New Zealand, Australia and the United States of America.
