Asian Development Bank and Samoa: Fact Sheet
ADB assistance to Samoa supports efforts to provide reliable and sustainable energy, safer and more efficient road and maritime transportation, better internet connectivity, and effective disaster relief.
To reduce costs and improve Samoa’s business environment, the Pacific Private Sector Development Initiative has designed regulatory and licensing reforms for the country. ADB has also helped improve the government’s capacity for public sector reform, particularly through the establishment of a separate ministry for SOEs.
ADB operations in Samoa are covered in the ADB country operations business plan, 2020–2022 for 11 small Pacific island countries, which is aligned with ADB’s Pacific Approach, 2016–2020. The business plan is targeting improvements to Samoa’s growth prospects and overall living standards and is closely aligned with the government’s Strategy for the Development of Samoa, 2017–2020.
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information.
