Publication Information

The National Infrastructure Strategic Plan (NISP) outlines the Government’s priorities and strategic directions for major initiatives in the economic infrastructure sector over the next 5-10 years.

This is the first NISP and it is Government’s intention that the Plan will be regularly updated as art of the national planning and budgeting process. The Plan covers infrastructure initiatives with national significance, and looks at the next five years to 2015 in detail and the five years from 2015 to 2020 in terms of broad directions for infrastructure development. It is the result of extensive consultation with infrastructure managers, users and development partners.

The Plan is country owned and led, and was developed in close consultation with representatives of infrastructure managers, the community, the private sector, and
development partners.

In particular, NISP is closely linked to theStrategy for the Development of Samoa 2008–2012(SDS), and its vision of “… improved quality of life for all”. Infrastructure plays a critical role in achieving the goals of the SDS, because there is a clear and positive linkage between infrastructure, social development, community wellbeing and economic growth. That is why it is critical for Samoa to invest in infrastructure and ensure that infrastructure is operating as efficiently as possible.

This report was prepared by Glen D’Este, Ian Bartlett, Isikuki Punivalu and Pisaina Lei-Sam as individual consultants under the guidance and support of the Pacific Infrastructure Advisory Centre (PIAC) in Sydney, Australia.
