JP Pacific Digital Economy Programme 

OverviewPacific Digital Economy Programme

Although socio-political and corporate influencers have made significant digital infrastructure investments in several Pacific Small Island Developing States, the national governments of Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, Vanuatu, and Solomon Islands raised the bar and set out to increase digital connectivity across the region by 2030. Scaling up the region’s digital economies is a transformative measure that will affect millions, reach vulnerable communities, and enhance women’s access to basic services—particularly with COVID-19 recovery efforts.

Increased investments in core digital infrastructure and adjacent devices, tools, and platforms accelerate SDG achievement by financing innovative and contextually sound solutions. Development approaches identify the root causes of market dysfunction and address constraints by narrowing the digital divide, involving rural communities and micro, small, and medium business owners in launching targeted solutions, strengthening relationships between market actors, and rolling out inclusive digital strategies and tools.
