Niue Facts

ADB's Work in Niue

Niue is one of the world’s smallest countries, with a land area of 259 square kilometers and an estimated population of 1,862 people in 2019. Fiscal discipline, paired with large and predictable inflows of overseas development assistance, provide macroeconomic stability for the Government of Niue. However, travel restrictions associated with the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic are having profound impacts on the country’s tourism-dependent economy.

Niue faces significant barriers to sustainable socioeconomic development. Although access to basic services and per capita incomes are relatively high, the country faces persistent development challenges due to structural vulnerabilities stemming from a narrow economic base, elevated cost structures given remoteness, and disaster risks.
