American Samoa Contracts

Samoans have managed to hold on to their traditional Polynesian economy and 90% of the land in American Samoa is communally owned. Tuna fishing and tuna processing plants form the backbone of economy in American Samoa. The region also exports canned tuna to countries such as Indonesia, India, Australia, Japan and New Zealand. Other economic activities include a slowly developing tourist industry. Major agricultural products include bananas, coconuts, vegetables, taro, breadfruit, yams, copra, pineapples, papayas; dairy products and livestock. Samoa depends heavily on the US government for its economic well-being, both in terms of financial support as well as trade links.
