Asian Development Bank and Solomon Islands: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | April 2009
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Solomon Islands as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information. Since the intervention of the Regional Assistance Mission to the Solomon Islands (RAMSI) in mid-2003, economic growth has averaged 7% and macroeconomic stability has been maintained. However, with one of the fastest-growing populations in the world, per capita income is the lowest in the region and economic activity continues to rely on the unsustainable exploitation of the country’s forests and large donor assistance. The projected decline in logging from 2009 and any major reduction in aid flows will pose serious risks to medium-term macroeconomic and fiscal stability
