Rosie Holidays managing director, Tony Whitton and general manager, Eroni Puamau, were all smiles after receiving the Supreme Award.

It was an astonishing moment for the local inbound tour operator Rosie Holidays after they were announced as the winners of the Supreme Award at the 2016 Westpac Prime Minister’s International Business Awards.

Sponsored by the Westpac Banking Corporation, the Supreme Award was not directly entered but selected from all applications recognising they have excelled in every part of the awards criteria.

The Award was presented to a company that has demonstrated significant and sustained international growth, along with a clear understanding of overseas markets.

The winner, Rosie Holidays, stood tall out of all the applicants, demonstrated commercial success and outlined benefits across multiple facets including, job creation, innovation, service excellence and social responsibility.

Rosie Holidays managing director, Tony Whitton, said it was a gratifying moment for the company to be recognised by the Prime Minister for their hard work over the years.

“One of the things that we are very proud about is that we are part of a very vibrant industry and being in a small island where major export is services,” he said.

Being part of the service sector within the tourism industry for a number of years, Mr Whitton said they have successfully been able to spread the message of Fiji being the happiest country in the world, especially to its non-traditional markets.

“Together with my team, we are able to present that in a global stage and encourage close to 700,000 visitors to come to our island and be part of this wonderful experience called Fiji tourism,” Mr Whitton said.

Adding another accolade to his cabinet, Mr Whitton said the tourism industry was the winner after all.
