Recovery plan

Samoa Tourism designs five-year recovery plan

The recovery plan is aimed at mitigating the economic and social downturns of the measles epidemic, and the Covid-19 pandemic.

Minister of Tourism, Toeolesulusulu Cedric Schuster said, “The Plan fundamentally aims to not only restore, but to surpass the success of 2019 which was the peak year for tourism, by dreaming big, and laying down the gauntlet for a new benchmark of 250,000 bonafide visitors per year.”
