In a bid to host more large scale international conferences in the future, the development of tourism facilities will be a key priority.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says they will now start laying the groundwork to host bigger gatherings following the successful Asian Development Bank meeting in Denarau, Nadi
“By building up not only our hotels, but our convention facilities – including a new convention center to be built through our superannuation fund, the Fiji National Provident Fund. That new center will have the capacity to host at least four and a half thousand people, putting us in the position to host the IMF and World Bank Group Annual Meetings in the very near future.”
The Prime Minister says that Fiji is fast becoming the total package, a nation that combines world-class facilities with the world-renowned warmth and hospitality offered by people.
