Private Sector Assessment for Fiji Islands ‘Promise Unfulfilled’ (Revised February 2006)
The Fijian economy has performed poorly over the past 20 years with annual growth rates averaging 2.3% and investment averaging no more than 12% GDP.
Fiji is a high cost business environment, with an infrastructure that is generally of poor quality. It is costly to fly to Fiji on business. These are just some of the concerns outlined in this assessment. The government will seek to improve growth performance by encouraging private sector development. However, before meaningful reform can be achieved, substantial progress remains to be made.
