Halo Olgeta from the Division of Sustainable Tourism,
In this issue of the Sustainable Tourism Newsbeat May we are delighted to share some interesting initiatives from the Hapi Isles of the Solomon Islands! Two countries have recently joined as signatories of the Pacific Leaders Sustainable Tourism Commitment and we share their sentiments on the importance of joining this journey with fellow Tourism Ministers from the region. Congratulations Solomon Islands and Tokelau!
In line with the Solomon Islands’ border reopening efforts, the Iumi Tugeda Holidays and the Minimum Standard Tourism Extra Care Program have been rolled out across the country. Learn more about these two initiatives as well as the Green Team Initiative and the Tetepare Descendants Association which is this month’s Sustainability Champion.
Updates on Fiji’s efforts on Child Safe Tourism and progress on the regional initiative for the establishment of ‘Geoparks’ in the Pacific are highlighted in this issue. UNWTO has released the International Code for the Protection of Tourists, an interesting publication which is presented as our Resource of the Month. Get updated on developments from across the region and beyond including important upcoming events, announcements and important resources which have been featured for your information.
The Division of Sustainable Tourism takes this opportunity to congratulate Mr. Petero Manufolau, Chief Executive Officer of the Tourism Authority of Kiribati, on his appointment as the Chairman of the SPTO Board of Directors. Congratulations Petero and best wishes as you take over the helm of the SPTO vaka!
