New Zealand is likely to offer a multimillion-dollar assistance package to Samoa in the wake of Cyclone Evan, Prime Minister John Key told Firstline this morning.
Fiji had also made a formal request to New Zealand for assistance overnight and the Government would be considering that request.
Samoa's Government has estimated the damage could cost $200 million and has called on the international community to help.
