For the past 18 months TRC have been working with Samoa Tourism Authority (STA) on the Samoa Tourism Growth Partnership. The New Zealand Aid funded project aims to improve the pacific islands economy via increased and improved tourism. Last week the TRC project team visited Samoa to assist STA with various areas of the program. With the groundwork now almost complete, in the coming months we will start to see implementation commence. This is an exciting time for the team and for the project.
