There is plans for a $2.2 billion (US$1.06 billion) tourism industry in Fiji by 2021.
More than 30 stakeholders met Thursday to analyse the draft strategic plan called Fijian Tourism 2021
The strategic plan’s objectives are to increase visitor expenditure and tourism yield.
It also aims to create a conducive environment for sustainable increases in visitor arrivals and support development of the tourism sector.
Ministry of Tourism Permanent Secretary, Shaheen Ali says this will benefit all Fijians.
“The tourism industry is a very important industry for the Fijian economy and it contributes the highest in terms of GDP and we want that contribution to continue but we want the benefits of the tourism sector to reach even deeper which means a focus on small micro and medium size enterprises and operators to participate including the community and the resource owners to participate in the tourism sector.
This will benefit all Fijians and continue to create employment and sustainable income,” he said
