“Great news for regular importers and exporters to Samoa, the Pacific Agreement On Closer Economic Relations (PACER) came into effect on the 12th of December 2020. CargoMaster offers almost weekly sea freight services to Apia from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Darwin and Twnsville. Call CargoMaster for regular air freight shipments to Samoa”.
PACER Plus opened for signature on 14 June 2017, and has been signed by Australia, New Zealand and nine Pacific island countries (Cook Islands, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu).
As of October 2020, New Zealand, Australia, Samoa, Kiribati, Tonga, Solomon Islands, Niue and Cook Islands have ratified the Agreement. PACER Plus will come into force on 13 December 2020.
PACER Plus is an important part of Australia’s engagement in the Pacific and provides an avenue to help foster a secure, stable and prosperous region. PACER Plus will provide commercial opportunities for Australian exporters and investors in a range of sectors. These opportunities will increase over time as the provisions of the Agreement lead to more open and transparent policies, and as wider relationships are built regionally and beyond.
Dedicated development assistance is being provided as part of PACER Plus. The PACER Plus Readiness Package supports Pacific island country signatories to ratify the Agreement. There are five work-elements under the PACER Plus Readiness Package:
- Legislative drafting
- Customs modernisation, harmonisation, implementation of up to date tariff codes and transposition of schedules
- Training on notification requirements under the Agreement
- Public outreach and stakeholder engagement
- Revenue planning and mitigation.
Examples of initiatives set up under the Readiness Package are:
- Trade Portals – uses ICT to enable access to up to date published information on trade processes/procedures
- ASYCUDA World – automated/electronic customs systems supports paperless trade – already in place in some countries
The PACER Plus Implementation Package, once the Agreement enters into force, will help Pacific island country signatories to take advantage of the Agreement.

How many containers have they shipped to Africa. Do they make what looks like a lot of exaggerated claims on their website, about their company and experience, yet don’t seem to offer much detail , if so, well done! your on to them! do not risk it, don’t call them.

SOME INFORMATION ABOUT SAMOAN CULTURE AND THE PEOPLE
The Independent State of Samoa is known as Samoa and, until 1997, known as Western Samoa. Samoa is a parliamentary democracy with eleven divisions. The two main islands are Savai’i and Upolu with four smaller islands surrounding the landmasses. The capital city of Samoa is Apia. The Lapita people are based in Samoa and are of Polynesian descent
Samoa’s climate is tropical all year round with two distinct seasons. The dry season runs from May to October while the wet season is from November to April. The average daily temperature is 28 degrees Celsius and the ocean temperature is in the low 20’s.
Majority of Samoans are of Christian religion (Roman Catholic is the largest) . In early June, 2017, the Samoan Parliament passed a bill amending the constitution to transform the country from a secular to a Christian state. The objective of the amendment was “to insert in the Constitution that Samoa is a Christian nation to declare the dominance of Christianity in Samoa”.
Culture in Samoa is a sharing communal way of life based on Fa’a Samoa, the socio-political culture. With Samoan culture, activities are done together. There are 3 main parts in the Samoan culture, that is faith, family and music. … The aiga or extended family lives and works together.
Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen found the Islands in 1722. French Admiral Louis de Bougainville visited the islands in 1768. He was so impressed with the Samoan’s numerous canoes and their great skill in handling them that he gave Samoa its original European name, “The Navigator Islands.”
