High Commissioner's Message
Welcome to the Australian High Commission Website.
Australia’s relations with Samoa are strong and productive, underpinned by our aid, maritime security program and the Samoa-Australia Police Partnership.
Australia and Samoa have a proud history of mutual cooperation and shared interests based on a broad and ever-expanding range of official, business and people-to-people links.
An increasing number of Australians are visiting Samoa each year as tourists and the number of Samoans travelling to Australia is also steadily increasing. Almost sixty thousand Australian citizens or residents identify themselves as of Samoan ancestry.
I am confident that the bilateral relationship between our countries will continue to flourish and deepen in the years to come and, as Australian High Commissioner, I welcome the opportunity to reinforce our already excellent bilateral relations and our fruitful cooperation.
