STRATEGY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF SAMOA (SDS) 2012-2016
"Boosting Productivity for Sustainable Development"
This is the seventh publication in the SDS series and the second to take a four year timeframe that is aligned to the fiscal year.
The document presents the key development strategies and priority sectors for the development of Samoa in the next four years. Drawing on the review of the 2008-2012 SDS and views expressed during the stakeholders consultations, the 2012-16 SDS will take a dedicated focus at strengthening economic resilience through increasing investment in the productive sectors of the economy. Dedicated interventions will be directed at the agricultural sector to raise domestic production to meet food security needs and boost export capacity. Attention will also focus on the manufacturing sector to transform viable agricultural products to higher value added processing for the export market as well as encouraging investments in import substitution businesses.
That is the rationale behind the theme "Boosting Productivity for Sustainable Development". The vision continues the longer term goal of achieving "Improved Quality of Life for All"
