There is a need to carry on the mo­men­tum in ex­pos­ing Fiji as a hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion to the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity. These were the com­ments made by Tui Nadi Ratu Sailosi Dawai to the del­e­ga­tion led by Min­is­ter for In­dus­try Trade and Tourism Faiyaz Sid­diq Koya at Narewa vil­lage in Nadi yes­ter­day. Mr Koya pre­sented the se­vu­sevu ahead of the Fi­jian Tourism Expo’s (FTE) open­ing cer­e­mony at the Sof­i­tel Fiji Re­sort and Spa to­day. The Nadi chief has once again wel­comed the idea to stage such events that will not only boost tourism in Nadi area but Fiji as whole.

“There are lot of tourism sec­tors in the coun­try which have been grow­ing in num­ber and they are all look­ing for­ward to this event,” he said. The Tui Nadi added since the expo from last year there have been pos­i­tive out­comes. “There is good news around with Fiji Air­ways record­ing a profit for 2015 and this is all de­rived from this kind of events,” he added. “Now we are hav­ing flights to Sin­ga­pore and soon to San Fran­cisco in USA. In the big­ger pic­ture this will bring huge re­turns for us and for our econ­omy.’’ “We have no choice but to sup­port it in any ways we could.’’ The Min­is­ter for In­dus­try, Trade and Tourism was also ac­com­pa­nied by the Tourism Fiji Ex­ec­u­tive Chair­man Truman Bradley and Pa­cific Des­ti­na­tions se­nior ex­ec­u­tives. Mr Koya and Mr Bradley thanked the Tui Nadi for his on-go­ing sup­port in the tourism sec­tor. “We thank the Tui Nadi for his bless­ing as this event and it will be surely a great cam­paign to pro­mote Fiji tourism stake­hold­ers,” Mr Koya said. The Fi­jian Tourism Expo to­day will com­mence at 9am at the Sof­i­tel Fiji Re­sort & Spa. It will be of­fi­ci­ated by Pa­cific Des­ti­na­tions. The three day event at the De­na­rau Con­ven- tion Cen­tre at the Sher­a­ton Fiji Re­sort ends on Thurs­day.
