    Abstract

    The Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic has evolved from a health crisis to a global economic crisis that has impacted countries worldwide. Each country has been affected differently by the spread of the COVID-19 (see United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) 2020. Against this backdrop, this entry aims to examine the impact of the COVID-19 on the tourism industry of Fiji, Solomon Islands, and Samoa. The findings from this study confirmed that the COVID-19 health crisis has devastated the Pacific island economies, with most of the impact on the domestic economy flowing from the decline in the tourism industry, international trade, remittances, and commodity prices.
