Solomons' new programme

Tourism Solomons CEO, Josefa ‘Jo’ Tuamoto has applauded the Solomon Islands Ministry of Culture & Tourism’s move to introduce a Minimum Standards and Classication for Tourism Accommodation programme.

 

Currently there are 160 accommodation providers operating in the Solomon Islands but only about 10% of these can currently be sold by international wholesalers offering Solomon Islands travel packages. MCT Director of Tourism, Bunyan Sivoro said while increased tourism was in the national interest, the main benefactors would eventually be the tourism operators.
