Thirty-four Chinese travellers from Access Corporate Group (ACG) are in the country to enjoy the Fijian paradise.

The Chinese incentive group was given a grand welcome by Tourism Fiji executives at the Ramada Suites by Wyndham Wailoaloa Beach Fiji hotel, Nadi, on Tuesday.

Tourism Fiji’s Chief Executive Officer, Brent Hill, and Executive head of regions, Robert Thompson, welcomed the travellers who arrived for a four-day trip, including Nadi and the Mamanuca Islands.

 

Ramada Suites

Ramada Suites by Wyndham Wailoaloa Beach Fiji is home to the group on this visit.

General manager, Rohit Lal, said the staff were honoured to have secured the first-ever major overseas Chinese group’s booking.

“The global Chinese market is indispensable to the property of Ramada Fiji, and the nation,” he said

 

A Commitment

Mr Hill said a commitment would be made to tap into Fiji’s tourism sector’s strengths, to increase its presence in the global Chinese market.

“This market is important to us, and expected to expand as a growing proportion of countries and regions have already reopened their borders across the globe.”

“We believe it can make the most of potential opportunities to extend Fiji’s tourism seasons and hotel occupancy beyond our traditional source markets and peak periods.”

Tourism Fiji regional director of the global chinese market, Vin- cent Zheng, said webinar training was conducted over the past three months.

The training involved 67 Fijian industry partners, to over 160 global Chinese travel agents based in Fiji’s key source markets.

“We’re confident that we can bring more success together,” he said.

“The natural beauty and unlimited relaxation in Fiji are exactly what this incentive group truly desires.
