Fiji is one of the most developed island nations in the Pacific region. Still, more than 31 percent of the population lives under poverty and the country is dependent on foreign aid and remittances. Following a military coup in 2006, Fiji has been targeted by international sanctions and was expelled from the Commonwealth, and the Pacific Islands Forum. The coup also resulted in a drastic increase in people leaving the country. Tourism is the most important sector in the economy and accounts for more than 25 percent of GDP. Sugar and textiles exports remain important sources of revenue, but have fallen from prominence as Fiji is unable to compete globally. Fiji also has problems attracting foreign capital as the military government controls a large part of the economy.
