SUPPORTING CONSTRUCTION OF SAMOAN LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY

Today we announce Australia’s support for the construction of a new Legislative Assembly Office in Apia.

The new building, designed to withstand natural disasters, will provide office space and facilities to Samoan parliamentary officials whose work is essential to the effective functioning of Parliament.

Funding for the Legislative Assembly Office will be additional to Australia’s current support for the construction of Samoa’s Parliament House. The Parliamentary precinct is a symbol of Samoan democracy.

Australia is committed to working closely with the Government of Samoa to support its public sector and democratic institutions.
