Tour Managers Fiji is pushing forward with Green Tourism, with a set up of a green project mainly to target the Japanese market.

This is an innovative part of Tour Managers Fiji newly developed village visitation programme known as the Green project in collaboration with the village of Nawaka, in Nadi.

Brain child of the Green project, Tour Managers Fiji managing director; Damend Gounder and his team approached the Tui Nawaka for his blessing to use their village as part of the Fijian cultural village visitation programme and also initiate a Green project in which the Tui Nawaka has generously provided land and assistance from the villagers.

“Tour Managers Fiji has hailed the cooperation forged by the Tui Nawaka and the villagers of Nawaka as significant to making the start of the project successful,” he said.

“Tour Managers Fiji plans to plant over 2000 trees by April next year with Japanese guests being the first clients to begin this green initiative.”

The investment is close to $15,000, undertaken by the company for the project.

“The Green project will form the basis of increasing Tour Managers Fiji contribution to combat the effects of climate change through planting of trees in partnership with villagers located in tourism areas such as Nadi.

“The project will also target promoting returnee travel through green tourism especially from the Japanese market as special name tags and tracking of the growth of each tree planted will be logged while clients will be updated on an annual basis of the progress of the project,” he added.

Meanwhile, Tour Managers Fiji welcomed the first wave of Japanese clients from the Fiji Airways Narita (Tokyo) flight last week.

“It was a joyous and highly anticipated occasion to welcome guests back to Fiji, a familiar destination with such fond memories for most,” he said.
