This report is one of six gender and investment climate reform assessments undertaken in six Pacific nations including Samoa. The report analyses gender-based investment climate barriers which constrain private sector development and identifies solutions to address them. Six investment climate areas are considered: public private dialogue; starting and licensing a business; access to justice and alternative dispute resolution; access to, and enforcement of, rights over registered land; access to finance; and access to, and enforcement of, rights over intellectual property. In each area the report considers legal, regulatory, and administrative barriers to private sector development with a gender perspective. It makes recommendations aimed at ensuring that women benefit from ongoing efforts to improve Samoa’s investment climate on the same basis as their male counterparts.
