Publication Information

This report was prepared by the World Bank. This discussion document is aimed at encouraging debate about the role infrastructure plays in growth and development in Pacific countries. It identifies opportunities and obstacles to improved infrastructure performance. Pacific countries have few institutional arrangements or governance processes in place which traditionally encourage accountability. There is very little competition for services, and few effective oversight mechanisms in place to ensure monopoly providers operate efficiently and price effectively. Improving access to and the quality of infrastructure in the Pacific will require considerable investment.
