New signboards tell Samoan stories

Samoa’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment has installed four new signboards along Apia’s waterfront as part of a pilot project funded by the New Zealand Government.

The signboards aim to promote the Apia Waterfront as a functional and attractive urban space for Samoans and tourists alike.

Some of the stories on the signboards relate to historical events that happened along the waterfront and also tell of interesting activities and sights to entice visitors to visit other parts of the country. 

This project activity is a milestone under Samoa’s Waterfront Plan 2017-2026 that was launched by the Government of Samoa in late 2016. 

The project hopes the general public will see the value of these signs as an important investment to Apia’s development. 

Another seven are planned to be installed from Matautu-tai to Mulinuu in the future.
