The Lautoka Chamber of Commerce and Industry is grateful to the timely efforts of all stakeholders, which resulted in more than 15 cruise liners visiting the Port of Lautoka this year.

Administrator, Salim Mohammed said this was a sign of the growing potential of Lautoka, which was yet to be reached.

“We have so much potential in Lautoka and all we have to do is to realise it,” he said.

“Lautoka has hosted more than 10,000 tourists and we hope to see this number increase in 2015.”

Mr Mohammed said a number of business houses have also proposed investment projects that would create opportunities to attract more tourists to Lautoka.

“Next year will be a challenge for us as we strive to serve our guests well because we have learned a lot from other cultures. The Chamber will also host meetings with business partners to further device plans on improving other guest services in regards to cruise ship arrivals.” He said the proposed eco-tourism park project is in the pipeline and is expected to take shape next year.

“The Chamber is working closely with the investors and the village to oversee the development of an eco-tourism park at Tavakubu creek in Lautoka.”

Mr Mohammed confirmed that a number of activities such as hiking tracks, waterfall dive, fire dancing, fire walking and meke entertainment have been planned for tourism purposes.

He also reiterated the Chamber’s appreciation to Government for upgrading the ports facility at the Queens Wharf, which now augurs well with their tourism projects.
