The 4th Samoa Conference hosted by the National University of Samoa was officially opened Yesterday 4th September 2018.

Hon. Keneti Loau Sio gave the keynote address and reiterated the hope to achieve sharp minds after the Samoa Conference. Samoa has been facing a lot of challenges however they were able to find the right solution for them. Challenges like domestic violence, climate change, and so forth. He also highlighted the importance of having partnerships with other countries. He believes that if there are many lights then there will be many shellfish.

At the end of the Samoa Conference, Samoa will be able to tackle any trials that may arise. Good governance is one of the issues that need to be addressed and he is expecting for it to be overcome. Domestic violence and climate change are the biggest ones that we have to deal with head on.

The conference delegates were welcomed with a traditional Ava ceremony held on the 3rd September at the NUS Fale Samoa. The Conference is for three days and covers a wide range of topics and discussions.
