International Journal of Economics and Business Research (IJEBR), Vol. 5, No. 2, 2013

Abstract: The study explores the contributory powers of urbanisation, services sector expansion and development assistance on per worker income in Fiji over the periods 1981-2009 using the ARDL bounds approach. The results show that sectors like tourism, information and communications technology, financial sector development besides urbanisation and development assistance are positively contributing to long-run growth and development. Therefore, sound urban planning, improving infrastructure, promoting Fiji as a choice of tourist destination, advancing and improving availability, affordability and accessibility of technology, financial inclusion and strengthening donor relations are pertinent matters for policy discourse.
