Find Industry and Manufacturing expertise in Kiribati

Manufacturing contributes 5.2% of Kiribati’s GDP (2008). Kiribati is considered to have a fairly limited manufacturing base, which primarily consists of fish processing and traditional crafts which are often produced by individuals or small co-operatives for local consumption rather than for the national or international markets. Exporting is naturally limited by the lack of systems in place to support high capacity output. The major manufacturing companies are all owned and run by the Government of Kiribati; these include the Kiribati Copra Mill Company Limited (KCMCL) and the Tarawa Biscuit Company Limited (TBCL). Such companies do contribute to the regional market, though are still relatively small players in the global context.
