Agriculture, fisheries and tourism drive the small, open economy of Samoa, a small island nation in the south-west Pacific Ocean with a population of less than 200,000. The agricultural sector accounts for around one-tenth of gross domestic product (GDP), half of what it was in the 1990s. Remittances account for around one-fifth.
