Day Two of the SAME Buy Samoa Made Trade Show was a flutter as it opened to the public on the second day. The day began with the Official opening and Proceedings, starting off with the traditional ava ceremony featuring many of Samoa and New Zealand’s political dignitaries. Of particular note was Samoa’s Deputy Prime Minister the Honourable Fonotoe Nuafesili P. Lauofo, and His Workship Tauaaletoa Len Brown, the Mayor of the Auckland Super City.
Both dignitaries gave a speech about the significance of the Buy Samoa Made Trade Show, and further stressed the need for increased engagement and working relationships between the two capitals, particularly so in the area of business, investment and trade.
The official proceedings were then followed by a beautiful morning tea, featuring the delicious Samoan delicacies offered by Pinati’s, and again, a high end fashion show by Samoa’s very own MENA and Samoa Elei Association.
The Trade Show was then open to the public, to come and view the best of Samoa’s export products. From 10.00am -5.00pm the Mangere Arts Centre, had again transformed into what appeared to be a mini Apia, as hundreds of people filed through to sample and purchase a variety of Samoa’s best products.
The SAME Buy Samoa made Trade Show runs for one more day on Saturday 16th November from 8.00am – 1.00pm. This is an event not to be missed.
