As a founding member of ADB, the Government of Samoa has partnered with ADB since 1966. Other development partners are Australia, the People’s Republic of China (PRC), Japan, and New Zealand; the European Union, United Nations agencies; and the World Bank. Close coordination with development partners and the Government of Samoa is vital for identifying development opportunities.

ADB approved its country operations business plan (COBP), 2013-2015, in September 2012, adopting a harmonized approach to donor assistance with other development partners and maintaining the focus of ADB’s Pacific Approach, 2010-2014, which serves as the country partnership strategy for Samoa.
