Nauru

In Nauru, PSDI is working to create a more dynamic and inclusive private sector, and to increase commercial access to financial services.

PSDI has worked with the Government of Nauru to:

  • Make commercial banking services available in the country;

  • Support the improved performance of state-owned enterprises, by restructuring SOE governance and providing input into public-private partnership options; and

  • Review discriminatory laws and practices and assist with the development of the National Gender Action Plan.

Resources and Spending

Of the $395,382 PSDI has spent on Nauru in total, 58% was allocated to Financing Growth initiatives, representing PSDI’s ultimately successful efforts to bring banking services to the country.
