admin's picture

SUVA, Fiji Islands (January 4, 2000 – Radio Australia)---The South Pacific Tourism Organization will convene a special meeting early next month to discuss continued funding from the European Union.

The meeting in Auckland will develop a proposal to persuade the EU to continue funding the regional organization’s marketing and research activities.

The EU announced last November that it would discontinue funding the organization effective May 2001, to focus more on the private sector.

But EU delegate, David McRae, has indicated that the European Union would consider continued support of marketing and research, if these activities were priorities for regional tourism.
