The economy of Fiji is mainly governed by the sugar industry and tourism. While the country has had some significant success in developing supplementary industries in mining, fishery, timber, clothing, and especially tourism, sugar continues to account for nearly a quarter of its export earnings. Remittances from overseas workers are second only to tourism as a source of foreign exchange earnings. The products that are imported are food, machines and some others while the main export products from this island nation are garments and sugar. Government of Fiji has taken steps to deregulate the economy; restrained government expenditure and reformed taxation system were two major steps. The main emphasis of the government was to put country's resources in making competent domestic production and export-oriented production.
