PAGO PAGO, American Samoa — A new National Park Service report shows
that 600 off island visitors in 2010 spent $42,000 in National Park of American Samoa and in the territory. That spending supported 52 jobs in the local area.
“The people and the business owners in communities near national parks have always known their economic value,” national park superintendent Mike Reynolds said. “The National Park of American Samoa is clean, green fuel for the engine that drives our local economy.”
