Transport is an essential component of economic development for Pacific developing economies. This document provides an update on ADB's Pacific Transport projects and assistance for 2015.

Transportation provides critical connections to essential services, and access to domestic and international markets. However, the delivery of efficient transport infrastructure and services is hampered by characteristics shared throughout the region.

ADB is currently implementing transport projects and technical assistance in eight Pacific DMCs—Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor-Leste, and Vanuatu. Investing in infrastructure development in the Pacific region is a key priority, and the transport sector comprises the largest proportion of ADB’s Pacific portfolio. ADB’s Pacific Approach, 2010–2014 emphasizes the need to continue support in the transport sector to improve connectivity via multimodal networks, while recognizing the need to ensure that investments in the sector are made more resilient against natural disasters and the effects of climate change.
