The Samoan and American Samoan Government leaders meet to discuss issues such as health, education, transportation, immigration, agriculture and issues that pertinent to people’s daily lives.
The Samoan and American Samoan governments are considering re-staring the "Two-Samoa" talks in 2022.
American Samoa's Lieutenant Governor, Talauega Eleasalo Ale, made the brief announcement during the Governor's cabinet meeting.
Talauega said that there are plans to hold the "two-Samoa talks this year to reconnect with our family in Samoa".
KVZK-TV reports that the last inter-Samoa talks were held in 2017, in Apia.
At the last talks, former Prime Minister Tuilaepa Dr Sa’ilele Malielegaoi said the meetings started back in 1983, adding that the meetings was started by our forefathers and has paved the way for the countries to work together.
He pointed out that it’s somewhat difficult to sort outstanding issues because American Samoa is a U.S. territory and they have to gain approval from the Federal Government on certain issues.
“However in this day and age, this should not discourage the continued working relationship between the two countries because we are in close proximity,” Tuilaepa said at the time.
