Fiji for the first time will be hosting the 2024 South Pacific Tourism Exchange in Nadi.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Tourism, Viliame Gavoka says this will be the seventh Tourism Exchange, and the first to be hosted here in the Pacific.

Gavoka says the Tourism Exchange was usually held in either Australia or New Zealand and the government is keen to bring it to the region.

He says regionalism is strongly engrained in the coalition government’s agenda and he is excited to welcome back our Pacific Island brothers and sisters to Fiji to celebrate and promote regional tourism.

The Deputy Prime Minister says the last time they convened like this was in 2013, with the Bula Fiji Tourism Exchange.

He says Fiji is a founding member and host country to the Pacific Tourism Organisation and being selected as the host country for the region’s flagship tourism event is a testament to the strength of our regional partnerships and the commitment of the government to promote tourism that is empowering, resilient, prosperous and inclusive.

The Minister for Tourism says the South Pacific Tourism Exchange 2024 will be held from 4th to the 5th May next along the margins of the Fijian Tourism Expo.

He adds it will bring together industry leaders, tourism professionals, stakeholders and partners from across the region to foster collaboration and highlight the unique cultural heritage and diverse offerings of each participating island nation.
