Polynesia Regional Office Director, pays courtesy visit to the territory
The Polynesia Regional Office Director of the Pacific Commission Leituala Kuiniselani Toelupe Tago is on the island as part of her courtesy visit.
American Samoa is her first visit since the establishment of the Polynesia Regional Office last month based in Tonga.
The Pacific Commission, of which American Samoa is a member, is the principal scientific and technical organization in the region, supporting development since 1947 with 27 country and territory members.
The SPC supports sustainable development by applying a people-centered approach to science, research and technology across all of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
They serve their members by interweaving and harnessing the nexus of climate, ocean, land, culture, rights and good governance; through trusted partnerships; investing in Pacific people; and understanding Pacific contexts.
Leituala arrived on the island on Monday and has had meetings back to back with government officials including Cabinet Members.
