Oceanic Voyages: Aviation and Shipping in the Pacific Region

Date: December 2007
Type: Reports
Series: Pacific Studies


This report was prepared as part of the output of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) regional technical assistance project (TA 6166-REG): Pacific Regional Transport Analysis. The goal of the project is to enhance economic development in Pacific developing member countries (DMCs) of ADB by improving the efficiency and effectiveness of Pacific transport services. In order to achieve this, the report is expected to contribute to reform of public sector operations and policies in the transport sector, and to increased private sector participation in transport service provision. Such reform and participation will reduce the costs of trade and commerce and consumer goods, increase employment, and reduce poverty.
