Asian Development Bank and Fiji Islands: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | April 2011
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on the Fiji Islands as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information. Fiji has received $317.26 million in loans since joining ADB in 1970. Following a coup in 2006, ADB suspended the preparation of the country partnership strategy (CPS). Processing of new lending and nonlending operations remains on hold, pending an ADB management decision on reengagement. Consistent with ADB’s response to an earlier coup of 2000, and its guidelines for dealing with defacto governments, ADB is implementing a two-stage reengagement strategy in the country, approved 5 April 2007. Under the first stage, ADB continued to support ongoing operations. The second stage will start when ADB management determines that operations should resume, either selectively or generally. ADB’s Board of Directors regularly receives updates on the situation. Fiji has made progress toward some of the Millennium Development Goals, and is close to achieving health, education, and gender-related targets. However, the country’s weak economic performance over the last 2 decades reflects structural problems that hamper investment and job growth.
