3rd place Pacifical #WorldTunaDay Video contest winner Sam Johnny Pedro is from the great island nation of TUVALU!

Sam’s video starts with a key statement on impact: “Tuvalu’s largest source of domestic revenue comes from tuna fisheries. It generates an estimated amount of $52 M USD to the 2021 budget” says Hon. Seve Paeniu, minister of Finance. The PNA “Vessel Day Scheme” alone contributes an estimated amount of $23 M USD. Part of this revenue is allocated to each island Kaupule for their various development needs.”

He shows how government grants invest in education through a “Tuition Fee Scheme”, the construction of a pre-school, and the Island Strategic Plan.

Good job Sam! https://lnkd.in/g_P3R9a
