The Pa­cific Tourism Or­gan­i­sa­tion (SPTO) has launched the “Pa­cific Tourism: COVID19 Im­pact and Re­cov­ery Re­port”.

The re­port was con­tracted by New Zealand’s Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs and Trade (NZMFAT), who have worked to­gether with SPTO to un­der­take the as­sess­ment.

The re­port re­leased to­day is Phase 1B of 3 phases and fo­cuses on sev­eral Pa­cific Is­land coun­tries.

The re­port out­lines ini­tial im­pacts and emerg­ing re­sponses across the Pa­cific and will no doubt aid de­ci­sion-mak­ing by Pa­cific tourism sec­tor or­gan­i­sa­tions and busi­nesses.

“The ob­jec­tive of this anal­y­sis is to in­form think­ing and to high­light fu­ture themes around Pa­cific re­gional co­op­er­a­tion for tourism’s re­cov­ery from COVID-19,” said

SPTO in­terim Chair, Hala­toa Fua. Mr Fua ac­knowl­edged New Zealand as a key part­ner who has al­ways stepped up to as­sist the re­gion and the Pa­cific Tourism in­dus­try,

“The re­la­tion­ship be­tween New Zealand and the Pa­cific has long been un­der­pinned by rec­i­proc­ity and care.
