Samoa Ports Authority

Apia Harbour – Samoa













The Samoa Ports Authority (SPA) was established in July 1999 under the provisions of the Ports Authority Act 1998 and is responsible for ensuring that the port and maritime needs of Samoa are met in an effective, efficient, reliable and profitable manner.  It is responsible for the port assets in Apia, Mulifanua, Salelologa, Aleipata and Asau.  The principal assets are land, buildings, civil works (including wharves), navigational lights, and vessels.

Adrian and Doug Oldfield were contracted to conduct a scoping study of Samoa’s port sector which will include: a business assessment of key areas of port infrastructure facilities, finance, operations and maintenance, and organizational structure of the Samoa Ports Authority (SPA); analysis of port performance and competitiveness of the Samoan maritime sector within the region; identification of opportunities for growth,  investment and divestment for the national port system; and assessment of existing asset management and maintenance funding by SPA.
