The Central Bank of Samoa (CBS) in partnership with the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), will be co-hosting a workshop on the 18th Aug 2020, at the Lava Hotel to launch and discuss the report on Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSME) Access to Finance in Samoa. This report is the culmination of an assessment conducted by Mr. John Harding which was initiated in late 2019. Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic the opportunity to conduct a further assessment on MSME impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic was also undertaken. As such, an additional COVID-19 supplementary report and recommendations was commissioned and will also be released and discussed at the workshop. Both reports will be available on the CBS and ESCAP websites following the workshop. These studies were undertaken with financial support from the Government of Canada, through Global Affairs Canada.Read more »
