Excited!! Let’s start.
Tuvalu- Basically, known as the Ellice island, Tuvalu is a beautiful archipelago paradise in the Pacific Ocean.

Tuvalu- Spread across 26 square kilometres making it the forth smallest country in the world.
Niue – Island spread across around 260 km . Country is around 6 times smaller than London
Tuvalu – First, settlers were from Samoa and probably arrived in the 14 century.
Tuvalu has no endemic species of mammals, although early settlers brought mice, rats and dogs with them.
Niue – Famous captain James Cook was the first European to sight Niue in 1774.
In 1901, Niue was brought within the boundaries of New Zealand.
Niue is a free association with New Zealand, so it’s basically represented by it.
TUVALU – Funafuti
Funafuti covers an area of 0.9 square miles and had a population of 6000 in 2014.
Niue – Alofi
Alofi has a population of less than 1000 people and its consists of two village :- North village and South village.
Alofi is a second smallest capital by population after Palau’ s capital Negerulmud.
Tuvalu – Tuvaluan dollar , Australian dollar.
Niue – New Zealand dollar
Tuvalu- 11,792 as per the data of 2019.
Niue – Not know exactly data, But as per latest UN data based on projections is around 11,619.
Tuvalu- 4.73 % USD (2019) .It is a small size and population along with lack of natural resources, make Tuvalu the smallest economy by GDP.
Niue- 6.2% USD (2020)
Tuvalu- Kausea Natano ( PM) since 1978 is the political leader of independent Tuvalu government.
Niue- Toke Talagi ( Head)
Tuvalu- South Pacific Paradise is the least visited country with just about 1000 tourist per year.
Major export trade is Fish and Copra.
Global warming is a concern in Tuvalu since the average height of the island is less than a 2 meter above sea level. Tuvalu could be one of the first Nations to experience the effects of sea level.
Even more surprising that 90% to 95% of all niuean in the world live in New Zealand.
It’s capital is basically a village rather a city.
