First adjustment saves time, energy

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, Sept. 26, 2010) – Samoa has for the first time switched to daylight saving.

Last year, the Samoa Cabinet approved a report by a committee assessing possible benefits of daylight saving.

The committee found that it promotes energy conservation, increases opportunities for leisure, and enhances public health and safety as well as economic growth.

However, the introduction of daylight saving was delayed last year following the devastating earthquake and tsunami.

Our correspondent says there have been a lot of notices in the paper, on radio and television reminding people of the change.
