At the 29th meeting of the South Pacific Tourism Organization Council of Ministers held in Niue this week, the Ministers were urged to take up stronger cooperation and commitment to the sustainable development of the Pacific Tourism industry, the lifeline  of so many of our Pacific Island countries and territories.

The Ministers were briefed and endorsed a number of upcoming regional tourism activities including the Oceania Village Initiative at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympic Games, and the China Pacific Tourism Development Initiative (2020 – 2024).

The Ministers acknowledged the need to drive high level advocacy and engagement at the regional and international level.

A Council sub-committee was established to support the SPTO Board and Secretariat in the effort to secure funding opportunities and elevate tourism to the highest possible levels.

The next SPTO Council of Ministers of Tourism meeting will be hosted by the government of Solomon Islands.
