Fiji and ADB

In the Spotlight

  • How Fiji Can Sustain its Growth Momentum

    Fiji's economy has had six consecutive years of GDP expansion in 2016, making this the strongest period of sustained growth in recent decades. While Fiji is clearly rising to the challenges of the 21st century, much remains to be done to maintain the momentum and deliver long-term sustainable growth and economic stability.

  • Digital Financial Services in the Pacific

    Digital financial services (DFS) are effective means of enhancing financial inclusion in the Pacific but major challenges, including the establishment of reliable agent networks and the building of sufficient consumer trust still need to be addressed throughout the region.

  • Pacific Economic Growth Slowed by Fiscal, Disaster Related Challenges

    A new Asian Development Bank report says Pacific economies face lower growth and tighter fiscal conditions this year due to low commodity prices and severe cyclones.

Consistent with the priorities of successive governments, ADB engagement in Fiji has focused on promoting inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction. Strides have been made toward these goals through direct investments in transport and urban water and sanitation infrastructure, and proposed investment in energy and public sector management.

The country partnership strategy for 2014-2018 aims to raise Fiji’s growth potential by encouraging private investment, make growth more inclusive, improve service delivery, and reduce volatility and build resilience.
