The Government’s preparatory efforts to host the 30th United Nations World Tourism Organization Joint Commission for East Asia and the Pacific and Commission for South Asia Meeting received a welcoming boost this week.
This is through the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism which received a donation of $50,000 from Carpenters Fiji Limited and $20,000 from Vodafone respectively.
Minister responsible Faiyaz Koya says the ministry was truly indebted to the generous assistance and commitment shown by both organizations.
He adds Fiji won the bid to host this prestigious Convention in Madrid, Spain and with the preparations well under way, Fiji would be the first Pacific Island country to host this event in the region.
The meeting is scheduled to be held in Nadi from June 18-20.
Delegates attending the event include Ministers of Tourism, senior Government officials, industry practitioners and tourism experts from countries such as China, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Maldives, Pakistan and India, among others.
