“Fiji is a wonderful country with stunning natural beauty and a rich cultural heritage. It was an amazing week of information exchange, and I have no doubt that Fiji will keep setting the standard for friendly tourism development and management. With the difficulties, there is a real desire to preserve Fiji’s natural resources and cultural capital for future generations.

The awareness and dedication to sustainability amazed me, but it also made it very evident that everyone involved—the government, business community, and citizens—must develop a national plan to guarantee the preservation of Fiji’s incredible resources. Participating in such a fantastic event put on by Fiji’s Tourism Fiji was a true pleasure, according to Dr. Kelly Bricker.
