  • 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.

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.
