“It’s translating into increased confidence in this country and an upsurge in bookings. Fiji Airways is also seeing some phenomenal numbers every day in terms of bookings. We will be banking a lot on tourism. Further down the line, the other sectors will kick in, but immediately, tourism is going to save Fiji.” 

Gavoka says the momentum that started after COVID is still very strong.

The minister believes we are riding a wave that will surely boost tourism this year.
