Economic Analysis Report on Four Markets in Fiji

This economic analysis provides solid evidence of the contribution of marketplaces to Fiji’s local and national economies: through
accessible employment for market vendors, the attendant employment roles supported by marketplaces, including: transportation industries, council workers, farmers, and law enforcement. Market vending provides positive income generation for many women, who then use their earnings towards food, shelter, health and education for their families, and to community obligations. This economic analysis provides a snapshot of the microeconomic and macroeconomic issues of the target marketplaces, and provides an examination of the economic activity which is occurring in, and being generated by, the marketplaces.
