PTI PACIFIC BUSINESS MONITOR REPORT 12 - MARCH 2021 

 

The COVID-19 outbreak has caused a global health emergency and an economic slowdown impacting millions of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) around the world, including the Pacific region. To understand the ongoing impact on the Pacific’s private sector, Pacific Trade Invest (PTI) commissioned Fifth Quadrant, an independent research agency, to run a regular survey to understand the ongoing effects of COVID-19 on businesses in the Pacific.

The twelfth PTI Pacific Business Monitor reports the lowest percentage of perceived local economy impact caused by COVID-19, since tracking began in May last year. The financial and emotional impact of COVID-19 continues to be a significant issue among business decision-makers. Worryingly, those reporting negative impact on their mental health worsened this month. 

Key Insights from Pacific Business Monitor Report 12, March 2021:  

  • The extent and severity of COVID-19 on Pacific businesses has remained relatively stable, with 80% reporting a negative impact (up from 79% last wave).
  • 81% of businesses reported a decline in revenue due to COVID-19, which is consistent with last wave.
  • 69% are confident that their business will survive the COVID-19 crisis (up from 68% last wave).
  • The top three challenges facing businesses are:
    » Impact of closed international borders (86%)
    » Not knowing how long the crisis will last (81%)
    » Poor cashflow (80%)

This wave includes reports for the top three Pacific countries we received responses from in March 2021, Tuvalu, Niue and Fiji.
