Fiji is described as middle-income country and one of the more developed of the Pacific island economies, although it remains a developing country with a large subsistence agriculture sector. In 2012, Fiji's economy grew by 2.5%. For 2013, the Reserve Bank of Fiji officially forecasts a 2.7% growth rate to be driven by the agriculture, manufacturing and the financial intermediation sectors. This growth is expected to be felt broadly across the economy. The year-end 2012 inflation was just below 3 %.

For many years sugar and textile exports drove Fiji's economy. However, decline in preferential market access and the phasing out of a preferential price agreement with the European Union [to sugar price reductions of 36%] undermined earnings and the potential of these two sectors in becoming competitive in globalized markets. Increased Government investment into Fiji's sugar industry in the last 5 years is showing signs of addressing issues of quality concerns, poor administration and inefficiency in the industry. The Government-led industry reforms implemented from 2010 is now witnessing cane quality and sugar production level increasing.
