A message to future investors

Maciu Malo
Saturday, November 24, 2012

ROSIE Travel Group managing director Tony Whitton commended the government for recognising the exporters for their contributions towards developing the Fiji economy.

Mr Whitton's comment comes after the company was named the Australia & New Zealand Banking Group Ltd (ANZ) Tourism Services at the InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa in Natadola on Saturday.

"It's a good initiative where Investment Fiji and the government is taking a leading role in recognising the exporters," said Mr Whitton.

"It also sends the message to any future investors to invest in Fiji because the government recognises and values tourism and investments.

"We at the Rosie Travel Group are one of the largest investors in tourism in Fiji and we thank the government for recognising the tourism industry.

"I believe that such award is a very important driver of investment for all tourism services organisation."

Mr Whitton said the award was recognition of the dynamic role that the tourism industry played in the development of the nation.

"The difference in tourism is that we are the largest exporter in terms of foreign exports, we export services and holiday dreams."

"Tourism contributed close to 30 per cent of our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and employing close to 70,000 people."

He added for his company to be recognised would give more inspiration to its 450 staff members to give their best service delivery.

The Rosie Holidays Tour Company also owns and operates the Malolo and Likuliku Lagoon Resorts in the Mamanuca Group.
