Often portrayed as an island paradise by tourists from developed nations, Fiji still faces many challenges.

Media coverage has focussed on tensions between Melanesian Fijians and Indo-Fijians which, combined with some allegations of corruption, have resulted in several military coups and a fragile democratic system. This does not always reflect the reality, however, with many committed Fijians of different ethnicities working together to achieve development.

Like many other Pacific nations, a large percentage of the countries income comes from tourism and remittances from overseas.
