Tuvalu and ADB

In the Spotlight


With few exports, Tuvalu is almost entirely dependent on external aid as well as highly variable revenue from fishing licenses, remittances, surpluses from the country’s overseas trust fund, and rent of its “dot tv” internet extension.

Rebuilding and maintaining fiscal resilience is the main priority for the government, particularly in light of growing public demand for better services and infrastructure. ADB remains committed to the government’s road map for improving the management of public resources, exercising prudent public expenditure and fiscal management, strengthening corporate governance, and delivering better public service to the people of Tuvalu.

ADB's approach and operations in Tuvalu are aligned with the National Strategy for Sustainable Development, Te Kakeega 2005-2015, and its objectives of good governance and macroeconomic growth and stability.
