A novel World Bank-funded assignment that targets to back Fiji’s determinations to progress the tourism
prospect of Vanua Levu, which is the second largest island of the country, is predictable to profit no less
than 60,000 Fijians by generating new jobs, along with tourism infrastructure funding.

The Fiji tourism development program in Vanua Levu funding permitted by the Board of Executive
Directors of the World Bank is among the first of three schemes scheduled over ten years for assisting Fiji in delivering its idea for more maintainable, comprehensive and buoyant tourism all through the country.

This initial stage of this program centers on boosting tourism in Vanua Levu, comprising Taveuni Island, by
bettering admittance and weather flexibility of indispensable facilities like drainage, sewage and conveyance set-up. This comprises the Labasa and Savusavu local airports, in addition to a promotion to
the 95-kilometer path linking the two towns.

Fiji, boasting of the second largest economy in the Pacific, has a strong tourism segment and is the
foremost association center of travel in the region.

Tourism at present stands for 40 percent of Fiji’s GDP. Nevertheless, the segment was harshly affected by the pandemic, with visitor appearances in 2021 reducing by 96 percent, considerably contributing to a 2.4
percent upsurge in shortage all through the country.
