The Fiji Hotel and Tourism Association (FHTA) was recently invited to be a part of the Fiji
Metrological Service’s (FMS) Stakeholder Consultations.
The consultation workshop was held on Thursday 16 and Friday 17 of July at the Pearl
Resort in Pacific Harbour to strengthen and improve their current relationships with its
stakeholders.
16 economic sectors were represented as many Ministries and Government bodies
attended the consultations.
Weather impacts tourism and tourism businesses and having the fore knowledge of
effective weather information prepares FHAT and the tourism sector to address and
recover from situations better.
“Agencies collecting data are of keen interest to us. Data can save lives, reduce costs and
improve productivity – our private sector members require that we continually foster these
networks.” says Fantasha Lockington, Chief Executive Officer of FHTA.
“Data sharing needs more than just a gentlemen’s agreement, the need for a formal
partnership to meet future sector needs is critical,” says Misaeli Funaki, Director of FMS.
FMS looks after the observation of regional weather, Fiji’s climate and hydrological
patterns, and provide meteorological and hydrological services.
The workshop was funded by the Government of Russia through UNDP Pacific Office’s
Disaster Resilience for Pacific Small Island Developing States (RESPAC) Project.
