A major challenge facing the government in 2017-18 will be managing the recovery from the lingering devastation caused by Cyclone Pam, a category-five storm that swept through the archipelago in March 2015.

Political uncertainty has eased since a change in government in January 2016, but tight restrictions on when and for how long parliament can sit will have a negative impact on policy implementation and the ongoing recovery.

Despite substantial aid from development partners The Economist Intelli-gence Unit expects the budget deficit to average 0.2% of GDP in 2017-18 as expansion of the revenue base is delayed.
