Tourism Fiji teamed up with The University of the South Pacific’s (USP) School of Tourism and Hospitality Management (STHM) to secure two final year students as support staff during the Fijian Tourism Expo at the Denarau Convention Centre.

Two USP students, Repeka Levu and Lidia Batikolikoli, who are pursuing Bachelor of Commerce in Hotel Management programme, said that the event was an eye-opener for them and allowed them to get to know and interact with domestic and international delegates.

“We gained a lot of knowledge and experience about the tourism industry and enhanced more skills in networking,” Ms Batikolikoli said.

“We can now understand how beneficial it is to buyers and sellers to promote Fiji to the outside world, ”

This partnership reinforces the extension of the memorandum of understanding that was signed in April between USP and the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism which enables both organisations to work closely to maximise effective cooperation and efficiency.
