Fiji and ADB
In the Spotlight
Maritime trade is the backbone of Fiji’s economy as imports and exports accounted for 62% of the country’s Gross Domestic Product in 2017. ADB contributed a $16.8 million loan to upgrade Fiji's ports, making them safer and more efficient.
ADB's new country partnership strategy for Fiji will revolve around three tenets: promoting private sector investment and growth; broadening access to quality services and economic opportunities; and building resilience natural disasters and reducing economic volatility.

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.
