The Exchange Rate of the Tala is determined on the basis of a trade-weighted basket of currencies. The currency basket is reviewed periodically to reflect changes in trade and payment patterns between Samoa and its major trading partners. As a result of the last review carried out in March 2009, the currency basket now comprises the currencies of United States of America, New Zealand, Australia and the Euro Countries. The weightings are based on Samoa's distribution of trade and travel transactions.
