Asian Development Bank and Kiribati: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | June 2008
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Kiribati as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information. Rapid population growth has left Kiribati with overcrowded urban areas, and its most pressing development challenges are social and environmental concerns, including the spread of HIV/AIDS. Only a small percentage of the labor force participates in a formal economy in which the Government provides a large part of all wage employment in public service and state-owned enterprises. Formal jobs are concentrated in South Tarawa.
