Abstract

Even though official unemployment in Fiji is low, the country has a large informal labor market in which workers toil without income security or social protection. Subsistence activities are widespread, underemployment is high, and the number of working poor is large. This report, a joint effort of the Asian Development Bank and the International Labour Organization, seeks to foster a deeper understanding of the context, constraints, and opportunities for increasing productive employment, and inform evidence-based policies that will promote productive employment and decent work. As Fiji enjoys renewed economic growth, it must ensure that revival is inclusive of all Fijians.
