Tahiti Pledges Support to Improve Tourism

French Polynesia (Tahiti) has offered to help Solomon Islands develop its tourism industry and also proposed potential areas for wider Pacific regional cooperation in airline services and restrictive fishing limits. These agendas were discussed in a meeting between Prime Minister Hon Manasseh Sogavare and the French Polynesian President, His Excellency Edouard Fritch in Honolulu, Hawaii last week. The meeting followed the conclusion of the Pacific Islands Conference of Leaders and the International Union of Conservation of Nature’s Pacific Ocean Summit, which both leaders attended. President Fritch said French Polynesia is willing to share its tourism expertise and experiences with Solomon Islands to help improve its tourism industry and on that note offered to host the Solomon Islands Minister for Tourism in Tahiti on a look and learn trip and also send its tourism experts to Solomon Islands. As for the proposition for regional airline services, the French President said the establishment of a regional airline is an excellent idea that could promote multi-destination tourism.
