Stepping-up in Niue

The establishment of our new High Commission in Alofi I August 2020 is a sign of Australia’s growing relationship with the people and government of Niue, and underscores Australia’s focus on deepening engagement across the region, including through our Pacific Step-up.


Australia is helping Niue build a skilled workforce by providing opportunities for education.

The Australia Awards Pacific Scholarships program enables Niueans to undertake undergraduate degree and diploma-level study within the Pacific region. Individuals gain skills and knowledge to make a lasting contribution to Niue's short- and long-term development.

Development Assistance

Following the establishment of the High Commission in Alofi, Australia is providing assistance directly to the people of Niue. Our new development plan is tailored to meet the development priorities of the people of Niue and will be implemented in conjunction with the Government of Niue. It will focus on priority areas agreed between Niue and Australia, including resilient, sustainable budgets and infrastructure and increased access to quality services.
