In this article, a neo-classical investment equation is estimated for Fiji. The results indicate that the long-run output elasticity is unity and the interest rate elasticity is around –0.4. Elasticities of this order indicate that further interest rate increases by the Reserve Bank of Fiji may reduce investment levels in Fiji. Furthermore, the expected rates of inflation and political uncertainties appear to have had significant negative effects on private investment in Fiji.
