We need to provide the best services to entice tourists to visit our shores as the Tourism market is becoming highly competitive world wide.

This was highlighted by the Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum while officiating at the opening of Tataโ€™s Restaurant in Nadi.

Sayed-Khaiyum says that Fiji needs to ensure that visitors are offered a good experience.

The Economy Minister highlighted that other countries are offering cheap rates to attract tourists to visit their shores adding that this provides the competition for Fiji.

Sayed-Khaiyum says businesses that offer different experiences, flavors and showcase unique aspects of the Fijian community and way of life is a way to provide a point of difference for visitors looking to travel.

He adds exploring these ideas can also create employment and generate a form of income for Fijians.
