Update: 12:12PM THE South Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO) has released its quarterly tourism review for the third quarter of last year, and noted Fiji's dominance in the visitor market share.

The report presented a review of the tourism industry's performance of Pacific Island Countries for the third quarter ending September 2014, which noted that Pacific ACP and SPTO member countries recorded an increase of 4.5 per cent to 479,545 tourist arrivals, compared to 458,813 recorded for the same period in 2013.

"Fiji's dominance in the visitor market share remained high in spite of the September election, recording a 4.6 per cent increase from 195,504 last year to 204,501, an increase of 8997 tourists," a statement from SPTO said.

It also noted positive growths in the number of tourist arrivals recorded for French Polynesia (47,759), Niue (2794), Palau (37,518), Papua New Guinea (28,086), Samoa (37,723) and Vanuatu (34,599).

SPTO CEO Ilisoni Vuidreketi said the review was timely because correct data must be made available to all stakeholders for planning purposes at the start of the New Year and the SPTO was glad to assist in this regard.
