The Samoa Chamber of Commerce and Industry holds its annual general meeting this afternoon.

The national private sector organisation of Samoa is hosting its A.G.M. as businesses take a more active role in development policy and the chamber has taken a higher profile on issues facing the country, expressing rare criticism to attack proposals for increased electricity charges.

Business includes election of office bearers and acceptance of new private sector organisations to the executive council.

The chamber is also involved with annual talks giving input to the government on its yearly spending, making wide ranging recommendations.

One of those recommendations is “that the Government consider implementing a small efficiency dividend across all ministries and government agencies on an annual basis to encourage efficient and effective public administration while reducing costs.”

Such a dividend would help counter the issue where ministries that save money suffer budget cuts.
