Samoa switched time zones on December 29, 2011. The change in time zones resulted in Samoa being west of the international date line, and sharing the same day of the week with Australia, New Zealand and most of Asia. Samoa was previously to the east of the International Date line and observed GMT -11h standard time. This resulted in Samoa being 21 hours behind eastern Australia and 23 hours behind New Zealand, two of its major trading partners. This also resulted in Samoa being limited to only three full trading days a week .

When the change occurred in December Samoa skipped Friday December 30 entirely and begin the following day as Saturday, December 31. Tokelau, a New Zealand territory, implemented this change also.
