The Gross Domestic Product is about $5.65 billion, with a per capita of $21,999.

However, the President of French Polynesia is Gaston Tong Sang and the High Commissioner is Adolphe Colrat. The ethnic groups are Polyn矔sians; Europeans, mainly French; and East Asians, mainly Chinese. The French Polynesia economy is the fifth largest in Oceania, after the countries of Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, and New Caledonia.
