    Abstract

    The study explores the contributory powers of urbanisation, services sector expansion and development assistance on per worker income in Fiji over the periods 1981–2009 using the ARDL bounds approach. The results show that sectors like tourism, information and communications technology, financial sector development besides urbanisation and development assistance are positively contributing to long-run growth and development. Therefore, sound urban planning, improving infrastructure, promoting Fiji as a choice of tourist destination, advancing and improving availability, affordability and accessibility of technology, financial inclusion and strengthening donor relations are pertinent matters for policy discourse.
