Publication | April 2014

Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Samoa as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information.

ADB has partnered with the Government of Samoa since 1966 and has received $186.19 million in loans, $55.72 million in Asian Development Fund grants, and $30.43 million in technical assistance, largely supporting the agriculture and natural resources, education, energy, finance, and municipal infrastructure services sectors.

ADB has supported the government’s reform efforts aiming to make the economy more private enterprise-based and competitively structured. ADB's assistance has focused on supporting public sector reform, improving the policy and legislative environment, and promoting private sector-led growth through the corporatization and privatization of state-owned enterprises.
