Nauru: Asian Development Bank Member Fact Sheet 2017
Asian Development Bank | April 2018
Nauru is the world’s smallest island nation and one of the most remote countries on earth. In recent years, its economy has benefited from the presence of a regional processing center for asylum seekers, strong revenues from fishing licenses, and the liquidation of the Nauru Phosphate Royalties Trust. Economic and fiscal sustainability, however, remain key concerns for the Government of Nauru. The country relies on narrow and uncertain sources of revenue, with limited private sector opportunities. Education outcomes in Nauru are improving, but are still poor by international standards, while rates of noncommunicable diseases are among the highest in the world.
