    All products were designed and developed using feedback from targeted audiences consulted in December 2023, culminating in a public launching held at Fagamalo, Savaii on 30 May 2024.

    Information on SBS services including; Household & Income Expenditure survey, Birth registration, Gross Domestic Product and Labour Force & Child Labour survey findings, were part of the suite of communication products handed over today.
