Deputy Prime Minister Hon Misa Telefoni extends his congratulations to Tanoa Group, and the Reddy family, on the occasion of the Opening for business of the Tanoa Tusitala Hotel on 1 July 2010.
Special thanks go out to Chairman Mr Y.P. Reddy, Mr Rohit Reddy, Ms Kalpana Reddy, Ms Elizabeth Reddy, and all the staff of the Tanoa Group who played a substantial part in the project to totally renovate the Tusitala Hotel. This work has greatly enhanced the magnificent location and created a city hotel which retains a resort like atmosphere and ambience.
This represents a major investment in manpower and resources and makes this project a showcase venture to show the world that Samoa provides good fiscal incentives, and a stable political environment. It is a milestone in terms of the first major substantial foreign investment in tourist accommodation in our country.
The fortitude and resilience of Mr Y.P Reddy in particular was best illustrated in his determination to rebuild Tanoa Tusitala from the ashes of the unfortunate fire that devastated this development at its earliest stages.
Government has supported this venture fully from its inception, and will continue to support the Tanoa Group in all its future investments and projects in Samoa.
May God continue to bless the Tanoa Group, the Reddy family, and all their endevours in all areas of their extensive operations.
DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER
