The 6 millionth visitor to the Samoa Both at the World expo will win a return trip to Samoa, said Samoan Prime Minister Tuilaepa L. Sailele Malielegaoi at a press conference held at the Expo Site yesterday.
Only 3,000-plus Chinese visit Samoa each year due to a lack of direct flight between the two countries. Chinese tourists have to transfer at airports in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. Malielegaoi said he believed the figure would gradually rise with joint efforts by the two governments in boosting cooperation in tourism.
Samoa is a beautiful archipelago republic in the Pacific and a popular tourist destination. Its people are known for their hospitality, said the prime minister.
