Samoa's Prime Minister, Tuila'epa Sa'ilele Malielegaoi, says he's overwhelmed with China's continuing support and assistance to the country.
China has handed over 20 cars to the Samoan government for use at the Pacific Islands Forum next week in Apia
It is also sending two teams of technicians to service the vehicles during the meeting.
At a handover ceremony the Chinese Ambassador to Samoa, Wang Xuefeng, said his government received a request from Samoa three months ago.
"Although the time is a bit tight, the Chinese accepted the request immediately because Samoa is China's long-time friend and we would consider the request from the Samoan government as our priority".
