Fiji continues to be a safe family location

SUVA, Fiji (Fiji Times, May 3, 2009) – The suspension of Fiji from the Pacific Islands Forum will not have any impact on the Tourism industry, says Tourism Fiji chairman Patrick Wong.

Mr. Wong said it was business as usual for the tourism industry and Fiji was well placed geographically within the South Pacific.

However, Wong said any likely sanctions by the Pacific Islands Forum would be sad as tourism was such a people-friendly business.

"Fiji has always been a safe holiday destination and will continue to be.

"Under the Government there has not been any unrest or military action that has impacted visitors.

"The family segment continues to make up a large portion of the visitors arrivals, families returning year after year confirming that Fiji meets their expectation, including being safe.

"Many travel writers and travel agents have also visited Fiji under Tourism Fiji's Pubic Relation and promotional programs since December 2006 to see for themselves first-hand. Fiji is safe confirming all is well for visitors and that our tourism industry is business as usual, the smiling faces, laughter and ever warm welcome of the local community is still there to be enjoyed," Wong said
