A WELL-respected figure in Fiji and on the New Zealand travel scene will be leaving Tourism Fiji at the end of March.

Tourism Fiji's regional director New Zealand Sala Toganivalu has announced this in a statement.

Ms Toganivalu has, in her six years in New Zealand, been attributed with having played a pivotal role in Fiji maintaining a top five most popular overseas destination ranking with New Zealand travellers during her time at the helm.

Bearing witness to this, a Tourism statement said about 100,000 Kiwis now visit the destination on an annual basis.

Ms Toganivalu said despite the many challenges impacting Fiji's tourism industry during her time in New Zealand, she had made Fiji proud in the world arena.

From a trade perspective, Ms Toganivalu also achieved many objectives designed to the local industry up to speed with the latest developments taking place in Fiji.

A graduate of the University of the South Pacific in Suva, Ms Toganivalu joined the (then) Fiji Visitors Bureau in 1996 as a senior marketing officer following five years at the Fiji Trade and Investment Board in Suva.
