Published on : Friday, December 27, 2019

Chinese tourists are very important for tourism development of the Pacific island countries like Fiji.

 

“As the Pacific island countries like Fiji, we warmly welcome Chinese tourists as they are contributing to the development of our tourism,” said Nanise Masau, the director of Fiji’s Department of Tourism while welcoming arrival of the Costa Atlantica cruise carrying about 1,800 Chinese tourists.

 

To exhibit Fiji’s hospitality, the department worked jointly with China Cultural Center in Fiji by organizing a Bula (traditional) welcoming ceremony for the Chinese tourists at Suva Port with traditional warriors and musicians.

 

The Chinese market is very important and Fiji is doing everything to attract more Chinese tourists. According to Nanise Masau, in 2018, Fiji received a total of 49,721 visitors from China, marking a year-on-year increase of 1 percent.

 

In Fiji, tourism earnings from the Chinese market have grown at an average 21.1 percent over the last five years.

 

Tourism constitutes the most important industry in Fiji and the biggest foreign exchange earner for the country.
