The Primorsky Territory government in Russia wants tour operators in Fiji to undertake promotion in the region and to attend the next International Tourism Fair they will organize.

For the first time in Fiji’s history, a group of officials led by Ambassador Isikeli Mataitoga met with the first vice governor of the territory government to discuss  issues of common interest and where early cooperation could be made with early dividends.

The meeting was about tourism where both parties agree that  many Russian tourists are willing to travel to Fiji, if tourism products, in particular adventure tourism products were promoted in most parts of Russia and the reciprocal Visa-Free arrangement that was earlier discussed to assist tourists from Russia visiting Fiji in greater numbers.

During the meeting Mataitoga also heard that some Russian tourists, who seek adventure tourism in Fiji, are people with money and they are usually the Russian investors who like to invest in the country.

Mataitoga later met with senior representative of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, business people and tour operators to seek their views about doing business with Fiji.
