Asian Development Bank and Vanuatu: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | April 2009
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Vanuatu as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information. Many of Vanuatu’s 229,000 people live in rural areas, where infrastructure is often poor which, combined with the country’s geographic isolation, contributes to a lack of job creation and poverty. Agriculture dominates the economy, employing more than 70% of the working population and representing 19% of gross domestic product (GDP). Fishing, offshore financial services, and tourism are other mainstays.
