The first of 16 Vietnamese factory workers at South Korean-owned Daewoosa Samoa garment factory have left for Vietnam. The remainder of the more than 200 Vietnamese and eight Chinese workers are expected to return home by the end of the month. American Samoa's governor, Sunia Tauese, says the circumstances brought on by the Daewoosa situation, when 11 contract workers from Vietnam were injured in a fight with Samoan workers in November 2000, have caused him to revisit the history of garment manufacturers on the island and to reflect on the future of the local industry.
