“So our opportunity to craft a plan structure for a tourism future that is sustainable and maintains what we’re famous for is important and so yes there is a National Sustainable Tourism Framework that the ministry is working on but you need to have real visionary thinking.”

The 10-year National Sustainable Tourism Framework aims to provide a roadmap to revitalize and enhance the Fijian tourism industry’s competitive positioning and anticipate future needs.

The formulation of the framework is led by a public-private steering committee that includes the Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation, tourism associations, and development partners.
