Asian Development Bank and Cook Islands: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | June 2010
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on the Cook Islands as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information. The Cook Islands is among the best performing Pacific economies, though it relies heavily on tourism—an industry significantly impacted by the global economic crisis—and fiscal sustainability remains fragile. Other threats to sustained economic growth include environmental vulnerability, infrastructure constraints and an emerging labor shortage while capacity constraints, weakening policy, planning, and project preparation, also impede development.
