ADB's Work in Federated States of Micronesia

The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) comprises four states—Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei, and Yap—in the Northwest Pacific. As a small island developing state, it experiences heightened barriers to growth due to its geographic isolation, small population, capacity constraints, and exposure to natural hazards.

Its economy relies on fisheries and development assistance, including grants under its Compact of Free Association with the United States, which have been decreasing since 2004. Negotiations are ongoing to extend the Compact beyond 2023. In 2020 and 2021, the FSM’s economy was significantly impacted by border closures linked to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
