ADB's Work in Fiji

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic caused Fiji’s economy to contract by 15.2% in 2020 and an estimated 4.1% in 2021. Prospects for recovery in 2022 have improved with the reopening of borders in December 2021.

Fiji joined ADB in 1970. In November 2021, ADB reclassified Fiji from a group C to a group B country under ADB’s Graduation Policy. This means that Fiji will be eligible for loans under a blend of concessional and regular ordinary capital resources, with some access to Asian Development Fund 13 thematic pool grants, beginning January 2022.
