French Polynesia is the fifth largest economy in Oceania after Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii and French New Caledonia. The traditional economy is dominated by agriculture, the industrial foundation is weak, and tourism has become the main economic pillar. Since 1966, due to France’s nuclear tests in the South Pacific and the increasing number of troops stationed in Poland, the construction and service industries have developed rapidly. A large number of foreign laborers have flooded into Tahiti, destroying the traditional self-sufficient agricultural economy. . Long-term investment in agriculture has decreased, turning agricultural exports into imports. About 80% of food is imported. Copra exports have fallen sharply due to low prices in the international market. Every year, the French government provides assistance to subsidize financial losses. In 1995, France and Polynesia reached an agreement. From 1996 to 2006, France will provide 28.3 billion Pacific francs in aid each year; and in early 1996, nuclear testing was finally stopped. The agreement is expected to encourage Polynesia to develop a diversified economy and strengthen its tendency to adhere to independence for a long time. In order to increase fiscal revenue, the government announced the implementation of value-added tax in October 1997. Poland is a member of the Pacific Community and has received assistance, technical guidance and training from the community in terms of economic, cultural and social development. The Polish government is working hard to develop close economic and trade relations with Asian and Pacific countries to promote its export capabilities. Poland's economic growth mainly lies in the service industry and tourism-related industries. These two industries have created considerable employment opportunities for Poland. The noni production on the island of Tahiti in Poland accounts for more than 80% of the world's total production. About 95% of the world's noni production comes from the Tahiti Islands. Poland’s pearl farming industry has grown slowly, mainly due to the impact of Japan’s economic recession, which is the largest importer of black pearls. Poland’s economy continued to grow in the late 1990s, increasing by 6.2% in 1998, 4% in 1999, and 4% in 2000. Poland's economic growth is mainly due to the financial support of France and the development of Poland's tourism industry.
