To ensure timely and quality statistics and research, through collaborative partnerships, are readily available to all tourism stakeholders for decision and policy-making.

Pacific greetings from the Research & Statistics Team! The Pacific Tourism Organisation acknowledges the importance of research and statistics as a key strategic priority in developing the region as a competitive and highly visited tourism destination.  In hindsight, the COVID-19 pandemic has provided individual countries and the Pacific region with an opportunity to reset, rethink and rebuild tourism back to be more resilient and sustainable.  A range of tourism research initiatives have been and continue to be undertaken in the Pacific region.  Recognising the invaluable contribution of such research and knowledge to the recovery planning efforts of Pacific Island Countries during these unprecedented times, SPTO brings clear and concise travel & tourism research and insights to Pacific Island Countries, partner organisations, private sector and development partners is fundamental in moving forward.
