ROSIE Holidays foray into the lucrative Chinese incentive market was spearheaded by general manager, Eroni Puamau.
Mr Puamau said apart from the economic benefits to tourism and the national economy, traditional cultural practices would be encouraged and preserved when more than 1200 sales agents from Chinese herbal company Infinitus visit the country next week.
“Our charter flights project that we started two years ago sparked the interest from our key partners whom we had been working together with in developing awareness of Fiji as an incentive destination,” he said.
“The fact that we are able to fly wide-bodied modern aircraft from Shanghai and Beijing to Fiji was an eye-opener for many and it has allowed us to move into new opportunities across China such as the incentive travel segment.
“Corporate companies across China are looking for unique experiences as a reward for their high achievers and for Infinitus, we have developed authentic cultural experiences such as a traditional Fijian fish drive and demonstrating traditional cooking methods and tapa making within a village community.”
