THE Savusavu Tourism Association has welcomed the decision to have the Tourism Fiji Board meeting in Savusavu for the first time.

Association president Justin Hunter said it would be an excellent opportunity to showcase Savusavu.

"It's an excellent opportunity for us having the board coming to our destination for their first meeting," he said.

"It is also an opportunity for our members to raise issues we've had over the past years.

"We are very grateful to the board for coming to Savusavu."

The meeting agenda includes discussion of the major tourism development projects planned for the North in the next five years and other tourism issues.

The acting chair of Tourism Fiji and permanent secretary for Tourism, Elizabeth Powell, said the board meetings would be held in different areas.

"Beginning with this trip to Savusavu, Tourism Fiji Board meetings this year will be held in the different tourism regions of Fiji so that key stakeholders will have the opportunity to meet the board and management to discuss opportunities for their regions and understand the new rebranding strategy and marketing initiatives," she said.

While in Savusavu, board members would visit a few major tourism developments planned for the next five years in the North and meet members of the association.

There are 35 licensed hotels and resorts with a total of 314 rooms in Savusavu and the islands off Savusavu.

This is about 10 per cent of the total number of hotels in Fiji and 3 per cent of the total number of rooms.
