Samoa’s Big Problem

leave a comment »

As you can see Samoa looks pretty cool. South of Equator between New Zealand and Hawai. 180.000 people live there and earn 6000 average per month.

The countries biggest issue these days was the money spent on healthcare. The lack of hi-tech health facilities made Samoa government pay more than 3 million dollars to operations in New Zealand and Australia.

Some more facts about Samoa;

-They gained independence from New Zealand in 1962. 

-It is administrated by constitutional monarchy. 

-Coconut is the main import of the country. 2/3 of the labour works in agriculture. 

-The main sport in the country is rugby followed by Samoan cricket.
