Partnership and collaboration in the spirit of regionalism were among other agendas agreed to by Tourism Ministers during the 26th Council of Tourism Ministers meeting in Rarotonga, Cook Islands.
This is to ensure member countries continue with their partnership and collaboration, in the spirit of regionalism, in pursuing the sustainable development of the tourism sector for the longer-term benefits of Pacific Island economies.
The Ministers also encouraged the South Pacific Tourism Secretariat to continue advocating for the development of its members’ tourism industry at regional and international levels, and with other organisations and development partners.
SIBC News understands the Minister of Culture and Tourism Hon. Bartholomew Parapolo was among other regional Tourism Ministers who attended the meeting last week.
