Speaking on behalf of Federal Pacific Group, General Manager of Federal Pacific Insurance Namulauulu Sami Leota told guests “this week is surely a week of celebration… in the last weekend we saw the impossible when Mate Ma’a Tonga defeated the mighty Kiwis for the first time, something that we again as Pacific Islanders, especially us here in Tonga, must be all very proud of.”
“As co-host we are very honoured and privileged to be given such opportunity and again I would like to note our thanks to you Governor Ngongo Kioa for allowing us to be part of this very important occasion. Our gathering here tonight is evidence of course of the partnership that we as Private Sector businesses enjoy with our Government not only here in the Kingdom of Tonga, but in other jurisdictions that we operate in,” he said.
