Asian Development Bank and Tuvalu: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | March 2008
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Tuvalu as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information. Tuvalu is a very small island country in the Pacific lacking adequate resources for sustainable growth to alleviate poverty. Its economic base is extremely narrow and incorporates hardly any, or no, value-adding exports. Consequently, fiscal revenues are too low to provide proper social services and public infrastructure.
