Economy of Cook Islands
As in many other South Pacific Island states, the economic development potential of the Cook Islands remains limited due to the distance to large markets. Other important problems facing the economy of the country can be listed as natural disasters which are frequently seen with the insufficiency of natural resources and infrastructure.
The fact that the economy is mostly based on tourism and marine resources makes the country's resistance to external influences such as global financial crisis and natural disasters very limited. However, the per capita income level is higher compared to other regional economies.
