The country operations business plan (COBP), 2014-2016, for Samoa is aligned with ADB’s Pacific Approach 2010-2014, which aims to deliver sustained, resilient, and improved standards of living for the people of the Pacific and serves as the country partnership strategy for Samoa. The Pacific Approach closely aligns with the aims of the Government of Samoa’s Strategy for the Development of Samoa, 2012-2016. Both identify operational priorities in energy, information and communication technology, and water and sanitation. Public sector management and an improved private sector environment are recognized as key drivers for change.
