And women participation are expected, said Debra Sadranu, as ANZ yesterday renewed its place as naming rights sponsor for the 2022 tourism awards.

 

Sustainability And New Categories

“At the 2022 season launch in Suva, Mrs Sadranu, said sustainability measures ranked high at the upcoming event.

New categories will be added to the awards,” she said.

More details will be presented next month, when the categories are announced.

The awards will be held early next year in Nadi.

It celebrates the performance of and exceptional contribution to the tourism industry.

“The season also marks a new and exciting time to celebrate the high standards of excellence achieved by individuals and organisations in the tourism industry,” Mrs Sadranu said.

“This despite the unprecedented challenges faced by the industry because of the impact of COVID-19,” Mrs Sadranu said.

FETA will include stakeholders that contributed to the reopening of borders, and those who have continued with business, after a challenging two and a half years, she said.

 

In Recognition

ANZ Fiji country head, Rabih Yazbek, said: “ANZ’s ongoing support of FETA recognises the immense contribution that the tourism industry makes in Fiji, and is a symbol of our commitment to the local tourism sector.”

“We know that tourism has a multiplier effect across the economy, with key industries including retail, transport and food services, all dependent on inbound tourists.”

“This ANZ FETA season feels particularly special, and I’m really pleased that ANZ is again part of this important event.”
