Micronesia Overview

Micronesia (Federated States of Micronesia), island republic in the west of the Pacific Ocean, consisting of the East Carolina (Kosrae, Pohnpei, Chuuk) and the Yap Islands, which are part of the West Carolina, together 607 islands and atolls. The climate is tropical-oceanic with irregular rainfall. The main branches of the economy are agriculture (export of copra) and fishing, as well as tourism.

History: The islands were settled from Eastern Melanesia around 3,500 years ago, discovered by Spaniards in the 16th century and later colonized. In 1898 they came to the German Reich, after the First World War under Japanese rule, in the Second World War under the influence of the USA, which they administered as a UN trust territory from 1947. In 1979 the Federated States of Micronesia were proclaimed, and in 1990 the UN Security Council lifted the US trusteeship.

Business

Even after the US trusteeship was abolished, the US made a substantial contribution to the state budget through financial grants and thus partially offset the chronic foreign trade deficit. Traditional industries are agriculture and fishing. The gross national income (GNI) per resident is (2017) US $ 3,590.

Foreign trade: Micronesia can only offset its import expenditures to a small extent with export income (import value 2015: 167.8 million US- $, export value: 39.9 million US- $). Export goods are fish and fishery products (around 70%), copra, betel nuts, coconut oil and pepper as well as handicrafts. The most important trading partners are the USA (including Guam), Japan, Thailand and the South Pacific countries.

Agriculture

Agriculture, which is primarily operated as a subsistence economy, covers around 60% of food needs. The most important agricultural products are coconuts, cassava, yams, bananas and sweet potatoes. Typhoons that occur regularly, which can lead to major crop losses, are a problem.

Fisheries: The granting of fishing licenses is an important source of income for the state. The exclusive economic zone of the island state contains the richest tuna fishing grounds in the world. There is a tuna processing factory on Kosrae and Pohnpei.

Tourism

With the connection of Micronesia to international air traffic, tourism has gained significantly in importance. However, further expansion is hindered by the poor infrastructure. In 2014, 35,400 foreign tourists (mainly from Asia and the USA) visited the island nation.

Transportation

The road network covers 388 km, 184 km of which are paved. The most important connections between the islands are ships and airplanes. Each of the four states has a deep-sea port and an international airport.
