Summary: This report discusses how the Pacific Islands development agenda could be put into practice by improving the effectiveness of government activities in nine Pacific Island countries that are members of the World Bank (PMCs) - Fuji, Kiribati, Federated States of Macronesia, Marshall Islands, Republic of Palau, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, and Vanuatu. The report analyzes the scope of government in the PMCs, their spending patterns and priorities, and the budgetary processes that give rise to spending choices. It is structured along three interlinking themes about enhancing the role of government: a) to focus on core functions, match government tasks to its capacity, and to improve public sector accountability; b) to raise the efficiency of public sector spending through policies designed to quicken the pace of economic growth and reduce poverty; and c) to implement planning and budgetary procedures within the framework of a medium-term development horizon and to improve processes of public spending, including those programs financed through external aid. The report also includes nine country profiles.
