Fiji has one of the most developed economies in the Pacific, with tourism as its main driver of economic activity and foreign direct investment. In 2019, more than 894,000 people visited Fiji, a growth rate of 2.8% on the 2018 numbers. The country has also seen a shift in exports from agricultural commodities to manufactured goods.
ADB has been supporting Fiji since 1970 and is currently working with the national government based on the country partnership strategy, 2019–2023, which was approved in April 2019. Over the strategy period, ADB has anticipated an allocation of $600 million in sovereign and nonsovereign resources to help Fiji overcome its key development challenges.
