2022 FHTA Annual General Meeting

 Thursday, June 23, 2022 



The Fiji Hotel & Tourism Association (FHTA) has successfully held its 57th Annual General Meeting (AGM) today.

Held at Hilton Fiji Beach Resort and Spa, the AGM was well-attended by members and associate members who heard a recap of the association’s past twelve months of lobbying and activities and took the opportunity to raise queries and vote on new board members.

Brian Kirsch of Likuri Island Resort was voted back in as the FHTA President. He will be assisted by Vice Presidents, Tammie Tam of Warwick Hotels & Resorts and Narend Kumar of Tanoa Hotel Group.

The tourism industry has been growing steadily since the December 1 reopening and we are determined as ever to come out on the other side.

FHTA continually advocates for its tourism members in all possible forums and our collective focus is firmly on sustainability and leaving a smaller footprint on the environment, the re-elected FHTA President, Brian Kirsch said.

Other new board appointments were: Neeraj Chadha (Marriott International Inc), Vincent Macquet (Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa), Azam Khan (Hexagon Group of Hotels), James McCann (Yasawa Island Resort & Spa), Kaydee George (Wyndham Resort Denarau Island) and Simon Doughty (Volivoli Beach Resort).

The full 16-member board will take the helm as the tourism industry heads into a period of recovery following the most difficult period that the industry has ever faced.

The Association firmly believes that there are unique opportunities to invigorate the economy by introducing policies that provide stimulus and accelerate growth by incentivising job retention, sustaining tourism SME’s and protecting vulnerable groups, while also promoting more investment in the industry.

FHTA CEO, Fantasha Lockington reiterates that the Association endeavours to support its membership by liaising with relevant Government Ministries, agencies and statutory bodies to ensure that all tourism businesses get the backing they need to rejuvenate the industry and grow the economy.
