The minister says the recovery has been remarkable.

“The way things are going, it’s going to be another bumper year for Fiji. We bench mark most of our performances to 2019 and for 2022 we were 71 percent of 2019 but the yield is much higher.”

Gavoka says the current rates are good for investment.

The Minister has also highlighted that 4,000 more rooms need to be built to meet demand.
