PSDI had worked with the Government of Tuvalu to:

  • Support SOE reform. PSDI provided peer review and high level support to ADB’s Pacific Subregional Office (SPSO) with the development of a management contract for the government-owned Vaiaku Lagi Hotel. PSDI also supported SPSO on the merger of the Tuvalu Philatelic Bureau, Tuvalu Post Office, and Tuvalu Ticketing Office into one entity.

  • Provide advice regarding banking service expansion and increasing business access to credit.

Resources and Spending

PSDI’s engagement with Tuvalu has been limited, resulting in spending of just $51,806 in the 2007-2019 period, to Financing Growth initiatives and SOE reform.
