Tourists need to keep coming to Fiji if they are to help Fiji normalize after the devastation from Tropical Cyclone Winston.
Uprising Beach Resort Manager James Pridgeon says as tourism is one of the major sources of revenue for the economy, tourists need to continue their visits to Fiji.
“It’s super important for us right now to get the tourists returning to Fiji. At the end of the day, this is where happiness finds you so come back home, we need your support. Every cent counts and with every tourists that comes into the country, obviously they will be making a difference.”
Pridgeon organized a 7’s tournament at the Uprising Resort grounds last Saturday to raise funds to help those affected by the Cyclone.
Finance Minister, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum also made a call last week for tourists not to cancel their trips to Fiji.
