Minister for Tourism Faiyaz Koya says 26 Yachts have been approved to enter the country to date.

While making his contribution to the 2020/2021 National Budget Debate, Koya says the arrival of the yachts will see an injection of $1million into the economy.

He says two weeks ago Fiji welcomed the arrival of the first yachts from New Zealand.

Koya says the yachts alone brought $40,000 into the local community over two days and brings back a little bustle of life to Denarau.
