Fiji has been enjoying unprecedented economic growth over the past few years.

There are many opportunities opening up especially for businesses. And the tourism sector is known to be one of the main contributors to the boom.

New properties are being developed. Big international branded resorts and hotels are being upgraded.

Fiji Airways, major inbound tourism operators such as Rosie Holidays and Tourism Fiji, and the resorts themselves are to be given due acknowledgement for selling Fiji as the most attractive holiday destination and the way the world should be.

There are also new opportunities through the local tourist market who  are spending some of their money at home in Fiji and enjoying the various hotels and resorts.

Case in point is the past long weekend and the number of locals occupying hotel rooms in Nadi, the Coral Coast and Suva has been noted to have increased significantly, which is another sign that the economy is growing.

People have more disposable income and tax breaks by the Government have helped.

Families are seen to be the among the beneficiaries because they can eat out and go on trips with their family and friends.

No longer are the elites in society seen as the only ones taking vacations in the country because they have the money.

Another sign that we have a healthy economy is that more people are employed because of the boom.

When people in many instances are contracted with Government they are offered good salaries which means their net incomes are much higher given the lower tax rates introduced by the Government.

Our economy continues to grow. And more people continue to benefit.
