SIVB

Solomon Islands Business Travel Guide - - News -

Q AsO: What is in store for the Solomon Is­lands over the course of 2017 and be­yond to con­tinue the good work al­ready com­menced and to en­hance its rep­u­ta­tion as a tourism and busi­ness travel hub fur­ther in the fu­ture?

SIVB: New con­structs in­clude new re­sorts in and around Ho­niara such as Ginger Beach Re­sort and the Coral Seas Re­sort & Casino.

In terms of events, The Guadal­canal 75th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions took place in Au­gust. But the next re­ally big thing on the hori­zon is the stag­ing of the Pa­cific Games in 2023 which is a cat­a­lyst for a ma­jor in­crease in in­vest­ment in the coun­try; from sta­dia to ho­tels and new roads, up­graded hos­pi­tals, gen­eral in­fra­struc­ture, etc. Q AsO: Look­ing for­ward, what progress and devel­op­ment would you hope and ex­pect to be able to re­port back for the SIVB and for the busi­ness travel in­dus­try in the Solomon Is­lands as a whole?

SIVB: Hope­fully the SIVB will have played a ma­jor role in at­tract­ing new ho­tel devel­op­ment both in and around Ho­niara and fur­ther afield to the other eight prov­inces. And tourism will be well on the way to be­com­ing one of the coun­try’s prime sources of foreign ex­change earn­ings.
