HONIARA, Solomon Islands (SIBC, April 21) – The National Tourism Forum has gotten underway in the Solomon Islands capital, Honiara, with more than 100 people attending.

They include Prime Minister Allan Kemakeza, tourist operators, potential operators, and senior government officers.

Topics being discussed include marketing, promotion and selling and both international and domestic airline services.

Participants will also discuss the formation of the Solomon Islands National Tourism Association, the tourism vision of conservation and the upgrading of existing tourism-related activities.

Speaking at the opening of the three-day forum yesterday, Permanent Secretary of the Department of Culture and Tourism Luke Eta said that the department would continue to support the Visitors Bureau in its efforts to further the growth of the tourism industry.

However, he says that all the players will continue to look to the government in providing help in legislation, finance and other means to further the industry.

The conference will end tomorrow.
