Description of Project Outputs
Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

The TA produced the final transport sector assessment, and land and maritime transport policies on September 2015. They were endorsed by cabinet in February 2016, and formally launched by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport to all transport sector stakeholders in July 2016.

The TA produced the 20 year Fiji Transport Infrastructure Investment Plan (FTIIP) that sets out the investment policy, priorities and projected investment in the national road network and rural maritime transport infrastructure over the period 2017 to 2036. The FTIIP is a living document and major reviews and updates are anticipated at no more than five year intervals through the period. The FTIIP will be a key enabler in providing social and economic access, primarily through restoring and utilizing existing national transport infrastructure.
