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 2018, more than 870,000 people visited Fiji, a growth rate of 3.3% on the 2017 numbers. The country has also seen a shift in exports from agricultural commodities to manufactured goods.
ADB has been supporting Fiji since 1970 and has approved $524.4 million in loans, $35 million in grants, and $33.7 million in technical assistance.
