Today Western Union has announced the appointment of Wailangilala Tufui to the post of Community Consultant Tonga. This appointment is considered rather beneficial. Wailangilala's role will be to continue to build and strengthen the relationship between Western Union and the Tongan community in New Zealand. And such role is very important, especially during ongoing financial stress when financial institutions need to have strong partners for supporting business and survive. Also Wailangilala Tufui has many things to offer. It comes to Western Union with a wealth of experience in both media and public relations and has worked within the Tongan community since the 1980s.
And those achievements are just a part of whatever the company has been working on. She is currently the host of the Maile 'O Telusa, a Tongan news and current affairs programme running on Planet FM104.6 as well as broadcasting a two hour Tongan Community Magazine programme every Monday. Wailangilala Tufui focuses on further development and responding to customers' demands and needs.
So the customers can now do many things. They can enjoy a reduced fee of just $141 per transaction. The process of such transactions is also simplified. When they send money to Tonga from any one of more than 6002 Western Union Agent locations in New Zealand they can observe such reduction. And certainly Western Union was delighted to announce that appointment that would support its position in that region.
