Assistance with Regulatory Requirements Associated with Re-establishing Meat Product Exports to American Samoa
Exports of meat products to American Samoa ceased in 2003. The trade was never a commercial one, and was based on personal consignments. There is no clear private sector interest in developing a commercial export pathway for meat to American Samoa. However, there is anecdotal evidence of reasonable levels of public interest in resuming access for personal consignments.
