ADB-Samoa Partnership Strategy

The country operations business plan, 2015-2017, for Samoa is consistent with the Midterm Review of Strategy 2020 of the ADB and aligned with ADB’s Pacific Approach, which serves as the country partnership strategy.

The Pacific Approach aims to deliver sustained, resilient, and improved standards of living for the people of the Pacific. It closely aligns with the aims of the government’s Strategy for the Development of Samoa, 2012-2016, which places priority on macroeconomic stability, sustainable tourism, a reinvigorated agriculture sector, revitalized export markets, and an enabling environment for business development. Improved public sector management and the private sector are key drivers for growth.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.
