Country Highlights

Tokelau & its Emerging Industries

Tokelau, as a small economy, currently relies on subsistence activities, public sector services, and external aid to sustain its population. However, the strategic development of industries aligned with sustainable development goals presents a pathway towards long-term economic viability and self-sufficiency for the territory.

Renewable Energy stands out as a key opportunity for Tokelau, given its abundant solar and wind resources. By investing in solar, wind, and energy storage solutions, Tokelau can significantly reduce its dependence on costly diesel imports, achieve energy independence, enhance climate resilience, and allocate freed-up resources towards critical sectors like healthcare and education.

The Fisheries sector holds promise for Tokelau’s economic growth through well-managed fishing practices and potential onshore processing facilities. Sustainable development in this area can not only ensure food security for the population but also create opportunities for exports and livelihoods through partnerships that focus on infrastructure development and skills training.

Modernizing Telecommunications infrastructure is crucial for connecting Tokelau to the global economy. Improved internet and mobile connectivity can facilitate access to essential services, enable efficient disaster alerts, and empower local businesses through e-commerce initiatives, fostering economic growth and resilience.

Eco-Tourism presents another avenue for sustainable economic development in Tokelau. By promoting slow, high-end tourism that highlights the territory’s rich marine biodiversity, Tokelau can generate income while preserving its environment and cultural heritage. However, this must be approached cautiously to ensure that tourism development does not compromise the delicate ecosystem or traditional way of life.

Investments in Healthcare and Education are essential for nurturing Tokelau’s human capital, which is considered a core asset for the territory’s future prosperity. Public-private partnerships aimed at upgrading medical services, educational facilities, skills training programs, and tertiary education access can enhance the well-being and capacity of Tokelau’s population.

To successfully develop these emerging sectors, Tokelau will need strategic external investments and expertise that complement local capacities without overwhelming them. Collaboration with regional partners, adoption of appropriate technologies, infrastructure enhancements, and active community involvement will be key to unlocking inclusive opportunities that benefit all stakeholders.

As Tokelau progresses towards economic diversification and sustainability, it must prioritize the preservation of its indigenous culture and land rights while meeting the evolving needs of its communities. Engaging in partnerships with Pacific regional organizations and allies such as New Zealand and Australia can provide avenues for balancing economic development with environmental conservation, sustainability, and self-determination for Tokelau’s future prosperity.
