ADB-Fiji Partnership Strategy

The country partnership strategy (CPS), 2014-2018 for Fiji positions ADB to reengage quickly and fully with the new government to help the country overcome its key development challenges.

The CPS focuses on three interlinked priorities:

  • raising Fiji’s longer-term growth potential,
  • building resilience and reducing vulnerability, and
  • reducing poverty through more inclusive growth and better service delivery.

Under this strategic partnership, ADB will provide Fiji with up to $350 million to support the country’s development agenda. Through its ordinary capital resources, ADB is able to offer low-cost financing for Fiji. In addition, ADB will provide almost $8 million in grants to finance technical assistance over the same period.

At the request of the government, planned ADB engagement under the strategy will also include assistance in 2015 to improve water and sanitation for 330,000 people, including many who live in peri-urban areas around the main Suva-Nausori corridor.

Along with its public sector assistance, ADB will also provide commercial financing to private investors in order to encourage new private investments in energy and infrastructure service delivery. This is consistent with the priorities outlined in the Government of Fiji’s 2015 Budget.

The country operations business plan for 2015-2017 is aligned with the CPS, 2014-2018.
