During the Mumbai stop of the Toursim’s Fiji Roadshow, the Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism, Faiyaz Siddiq Koya, launched a travel brochure on Fiji that specifically targets Indian travellers.
The brochure was developed through a partnership between Tourism Fiji and Kuoni SOTC, which is a well-known, Swiss-based luxury travel and tour operator, with branches in several countries, including India.
“Fiji has managed to capitalise on its long standing business relations with Kuoni SOTC in the UK and European markets and we see the launch of this brochure as the beginning of an even more successful partnership in India and the Asian region,” Mr Koya said.
“Kuoni has gained a wealth of experience working in the Indian market for 60 years This will assist Fiji in understanding the needs of Indian travellers and enable us to package our products accordingly.”
Also in Mumbai, the Minister had a series of meetings with prominent travel agents, including a meeting with senior representatives from the Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI).
“The meetings with travel agents and especially TAAI have been fruitful and I am confident as a result we will see further increases in Indian visitor numbers in the coming year,” the Minister said.
TAAI has extended an invitation to the Minister to attend the Indian Travel Agent Forum in March 2015.
The Mumbai roadshow was attended by 130 travel and tourism operators. The Roadshow ended last Fridayin the city of Chennai.
