Although Fiji is the most affluent South Pacific island nation, its history of coups and failed policies reflects missed opportunities by pushing more people into poverty. The question addressed here is whether Fiji?s economic policies over the past decade have been pro-poor, and if not, what direction should policy take? Increasing domestic economic activities, livelihood schemes, and assistance via regionalism are seen as important ways to build labour capacity for economic growth and poverty reduction. Actions to address poverty should be based on mutual obligations of individuals, government, and foreign aid.
