A TOTAL of 11 cruise liners carrying thousands of international visitors are expected to arrive in Lautoka this year.

Lautoka Chamber of Commerce and Industry administrator Mohammed Salim said the number of cruise liners visiting the Sugar City had increased significantly over the years.

"This shows the confidence these big shipping companies have in Lautoka City and what it has to offer to our international visitors," he said.

"We are very happy that more cruise liners will be coming in this year and giving us an opportunity to market the Sugar City as a tourist-friendly city."

Mr Salim said the chamber joined the Lautoka Tourism Committee and other stakeholders, including the Lautoka Taxi Association, the Lautoka City Council and the police.

"The committee has been meeting regularly with our stakeholders to map out a plan to introduce new and inventive ideas that can attract more tourists to the city.

"We are also trying to come up with more ideas to make the city more tourist-friendly."

Mr Salim said the committee also focused on the mode of transport taken by the tourists when in town.

The next group of visitors to Lautoka is expected to arrive on January 26.
