In a radio New Zealand news bulletin today, the South Pacific Tourism Organisation said Covid-19 has led to many nations and territories in the region having to reset their tourism plans, and I quote
The organisation, which has 20 government members, is the mandated representative for tourism in the Pacific.
Its CEO Chris Cocker says the last two years has seen zero-return on tourism for the region.
But he told Moera Tuilaepa-Taylor in Palau that Covid-19 has forced many of its government members to re-evaluate their tourism plans.
End of quote.
Of course we all want to see the Solomon Islands recover its tourist arrivals as soon as possible, but current numbers of Covid-19 infections in the country are concerning and one wonders how the government has evaluated it re-opening plans and strategies to see a return of travelers?
