In a recent initiative, the Fiji government has established a revitalisation program for the rice industry, with assistance expected from the Republic of China, India and Indonesia. Using the computable general equilibrium model of the Fijian economy, the economy-wide impact of a 40 per cent increase in rice production is simulated. This analysis finds that even such a large increase in production would have an insignificant impact on Fiji's economic growth.
