Nauru’s Economy: Impact of Global Trends

The global trends have a significant impact on Nauru’s economy and business environment. The country’s heavy reliance on imported goods makes it vulnerable to swings in global commodity prices, which can affect its inflation rates. Higher global commodity prices and Nauru’s import dependency are expected to raise inflation from 0.9 percent in FY20 to 1.7 percent in FY22. Nauru’s economy was expanding modestly prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, with real GDP growth slowing to 1.5 percent in 2015–19 from 19.8 percent in 2011–14. The country’s vulnerability to swings in global commodity prices due to its heavy reliance on imported goods poses a challenge for its economic growth and development. However, the establishment of the Nauru Trust Fund in FY2016 and reforms to state-owned enterprises (SOEs) have supported the country’s economic activity and will improve its trade and growth prospects. The country’s size and location also pose challenges for economic growth and development, as its remoteness constrains potential growth and raises its reliance on food and fuel imports.

Deepening geo-economic fragmentation and an abrupt global slowdown could affect Nauru’s trading partners and donors. Higher commodity prices and an abrupt global slowdown could have a significant impact on Nauru’s economy and business environment. The country’s heavy reliance on imported goods and its vulnerability to swings in global commodity prices make it susceptible to external economic shocks. The global trends in trade and economic growth can have a direct impact on Nauru’s trading partners and donors, which, in turn, can affect the country’s economic prospects and development.

The National Sustainable Development Strategy (NSDS) 2005-2025 provides a roadmap for Nauru’s development, emphasizing the importance of partnerships for quality of life, economic diversification, and the promotion of environmentally friendly fishing practices. The strategy of Nauru’s economy underscores the need to build the necessary institutional and legislative frameworks consistent with best practices to support sustainable and inclusive development. To support the implementation of the strategy, Nauru has been working to build capacity through participation, with a focus on strengthening participatory capacity to support the design and implementation of a participatory planning process. The process has engendered wide community engagement, promoting inclusivity and ensuring that the voices of all segments of the population are heard.

The National Sustainable Development Strategy provides a roadmap for Nauru’s development, emphasizing the importance of partnerships for quality of life, economic diversification, and the promotion of environmentally friendly fishing practices. By addressing these challenges and leveraging the available opportunities, Nauru can work towards sustainable and inclusive prosperity, building a better future for its citizens.
