In general
Samoa has been independent since 1962 and its constitution provides for a parliamentary government, which as in many Pacific Island nations combines the traditional Samoan social structure and a democratic voting system. There is a forty-seven member Legislative Assembly which consists of forty-five Matai title holders who are elected by their peers and two non-Samoan residents who are registered on the Universal Voters Roll. Parliamentary elections are held every three years.
The first Superior Court of Samoa possesses and exercises all the
jurisdiction, power and authority necessary to administer the laws of Samoa. It is backed up by a Court of Appeals and a Supreme Court.

Samoa has a modern international airport can accommodate 747 type
aircraft. Air services provide direct access to New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, Cook Islands and Hawaii. The country has adequate docks and is well serviced by Pacific regional shipping services.
Samoa has good international telecommunications with telex, facsimile and international direct dial facilities via satellite.
Agriculture employs 50% of the workforce and contributes more than 50% to GDP and 90% of exports. Tourism has now become the most important growth industry. Unlike most offshore jurisdictions, financial services play a relatively small role in the economy. Furthermore, its isolation in the Southern Pacific and its independence makes it less subject to interference by the OECD, EU and U.S. English is widely spoken and is taught in all schools. Samoan is the official language. Currency is Samoan Dollar (Tala). No exchange control.
