“New Zealand went to great lengths to ensure Rugby World Cup 2011 reflected our place in the Pacific and presented opportunities for our Pacific neighbours.
“Rugby is the national game of Samoa, and this special All Blacks visit acknowledges the warmth and depth of the relationship between our two countries, and the bond we share through the game of rugby,” Mr McCully says.
Sir Graham and Victor Vito will be in Samoa from 23 to 25 July.
A festival of New Zealand films featuring Samoan directors and performers is showing on Samoan television in the two weeks leading up to Friendship Week. Celebrations also include a wine and food festival and a variety of cultural performances.
