APIA (Savali Online/Pacific Media Centre/Pacific Media Watch):  Savali newspaper has launched a new website. It will provide daily updated news, images, video streams and public forums creating a bridge between the Samoan people and international community.

"It's a service we should have provided a long time ago," said Savali editor Tupuola Terry Tavita. "We have had a page link with the official government website for some years now but that is no longer viable. We need our own website to present the government's views on the issues, national events and news of public interest."

With the growth of web communities, many Samoans overseas turn to the internet for information about what's happening at home. The Savali site will provide a reliable view of Samoan current events and help keep people informed. The web site will be professional and easily accessible from anywhere in the world at any time. will deliver fair and balanced information in an interactive format providing access Samoans can't obtain anywhere else. Features include a Prime Minister's forum - where you can ask questions directly to the Prime Minister, a subscription page including our Lands and Titles monthly publication online - the largest circulation in the country - and links and features for other government ministries and corporations. This website will be the front door for news and information about Samoa.

"We're also setting up a small camera unit where videos of national events - openings and such - will be streamed online," Tupuola said.

"Radio streams from 2AP are also another option we're considering at the moment."
