    Abstract

    This study provides an assessment of Fiji’s ‘Look North Trade Policy’ in the post 2000 period and examines the factors that influence its long-term trade with Asia. The gravity model results suggest that imports by Asian countries are influenced by the size of their population, their infrastructure, and the distance from Fiji. The results also indicate that Fiji’s exports to Asia are significantly influenced by Fiji’s infrastructure, the distance to markets, and the real exchange rate.
