Niue: Tourism’s Impact on the Economy

Niue, a small island nation in the South Pacific, has a relatively small economy that is heavily reliant on tourism. The tourism industry is the primary source of revenue for the island, providing jobs and benefits for all residents through all seasons. However, the island has experienced significant population decline due to outmigration, resulting in acute labor shortages, particularly in the tourism sector.

The sustainability of Niue’s tourism industry has been a topic of concern, with some studies suggesting that the industry is only sustainable in environmental and socio-cultural aspects, but not economically. However— the government of Niue has identified tourism as the only viable option for significant economic development and there has been sizeable investment from the government and international aid agencies to support the industry.
