Description:

  The agriculture sector (encompassing crops, livestock, forestry and fisheries) offers some of the best opportunities for Samoa’s development. Given the high proportion of people who are engaged primarily in the agriculture sector, and Samoa’s relatively limited resource base, the agriculture sector must be developed if the majority of Samoans are not only going to satisfy their subsistence needs in future years, but meet their increasing needs for cash income.
