Pepe said it’s a start and that SSC had been actively promoting the partnership as a means to unite both Samoa with mutual benefits.

Asked if there was a suggestion from ASTCA for SSC to assist financially with funding their participation, Pepe said there was no suggestion of that in the proposal received but he did not rule out any assistance if sought from prospective partners.
