Ambassador Wang Xuefeng Attends Completion Ceremony of Loto Taumafai Society National Disability Centre
The completion ceremony of the Loto Taumafai Society National Disability Centre was held on November 6, 2015 as one of the two precious gifts presented to the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic relations between China and Samoa. Hon. Prime Minister Tuilaepa and Ambassador Wang Xuefeng graced the ceremony which was also attended by about 400 people including major Cabinet ministers, Parliament members, members from diplomatic corps in Samoa, teachers and students from Loto Taumafai Society National Disability Centre, engineers and technicians from China Hunan Construction Corporation, diplomats from Economic and Commercial department of the Chinese Embassay and press friends.
In his speech, Prime Minister spoke highly of the quality and efficiency of the National Disability Center. On behalf of the Samoan government and people, he expressed sincere gratitude to the Chinese government and people for the consistent and generous gratuitous aid as well as his wishes for Samoa-China friendship to last forever.
Ambassador Wang Xuefeng expressed his happiness in witnessing the exciting moment of a dream coming true for the teachers and students of the National Disability Center. Ever since its establishment in 1981, teachers and students have been using premises leased by the Samoan government with poor facilities and they have always dreamed of having a place of their own. In 2011, at the request of the Samoan government, the Chinese government decided to provide a grant aid to build the new National Disability Center.
Ambassador Wang Xuefeng said that at this joyous moment of celebrating the completion of the project, we should express our sincere thanks to all the engineers, technicians and construction workers of China Hunan Construction Corporation and all the Samoan government officials and people who cared and supported the project. It is with all the concerted efforts that this National Disability Center has grown from dream to blueprint and from blueprint to reality.
Ambassador Wang Xuefeng remarked that November 6 marks the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic relations between China and Samoa. These 40 years have witnessed the deepening mutual political trust, fruitful results in economic trade and cooperation, and more importantly, the strengthening friendship between the peoples of our two countries. This newly-built National Disability Center will become another new embodiment of China-Samoa friendship.Looking back on the past four decades, we feel very proud of the great achievements in China-Samoa friendship and cooperation. Looking into the future, we are convinced that China-Samoa friendship will blossom even more beautifully ever.
Teachers and students were so happy that they danced and sang to their hearts' content to express their gratitude to the Chinese government and their Chinese friends from Hunan Construction Corporation.
Ambassador Wang Xuefeng cut the ribbon together with Hon. Minister of Engineering, Transportation and Infrastructure of Samoa for the new building and afterwards inspected the facilities of the Center.
The major newspaper《Samoa Observer》and other media had the full coverage of the news, praising China-Samoa friendship.
Loto Taumafai Society National Disability Centre is the oldest and most well-known training center for the disabled people in Samoa. Established in 1981, it has devoted itself to providing basic education and skill training for the disabled children. With the new premises, now the number of students that this center can accommodate will increase from 150 to about 400.
