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, have helped provide macroeconomic stability for the Government of Niue. Travel restrictions associated with the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic have had profound impacts on the country’s tourism-dependent economy.
Niue became the 68th and most recent member of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in 2019. To date, ADB has committed 2 public sector grants and technical assistance totaling $4.3 million to Niue.
