These are unprecedented times. This page is intended as a resource for Pacific exporters, tourism operators and investors to help them navigate the road ahead.
PTI Australia is committed to supporting Pacific businesses through this time, and we have adapted our work in trade, investment, tourism and labour mobility to be effective in the new environment we find ourselves in. You can read more here. We will be updating this page regularly as we continue to work closely with our partners and stakeholders across the Pacific, to support businesses in the Pacific through this challenging period.
PTI PACIFIC BUSINESS MONITOR
The impact of COVID-19 on the economy and trading conditions for Pacific businesses is expected to continue for the next twelve months. As a global PTI network, we have launched the PTI Pacific Business Monitor Survey, a fortnightly survey to understand and provide governments, donors and stakeholders with needed data of how businesses in the Pacific are doing. The ongoing results will also guide our response to COVID-19 and how we can best use our resources to support the Pacific's private sector.
Our first report PTI Pacific Business Monitor Report has found that Pacific businesses are feeling the full impact of COVID-19 restrictions, with 92% reporting a decline in revenue.
The voice of the Pacific's Private Sector is stronger together - Pacific business owners/decision markets can be part of the second PTI Pacific Business Monitor Survey here. (Closes Sun 7 June 2020)
