ADB report highlights tourism challenge

ADB report highlights tourism challenge The opening of our border to invite the resumption tourists visiting our shores may still take some time.

The Asian Development Bank in its Pacific Economic Report said even if Fiji fully vaccinates its eligible population, the opening of the borders for tourism resumption may still take some time.

The ADB report said this is because vaccination rates are relatively low in its traditional tourism markets of Australia and New Zealand.

“Fiji may consider opening its borders to countries with high vaccination rates first but resumption may still take some time,” the report said.

Australia’s Minister for International Development Zed Seselja said the escalating cases of coronavirus in Fiji has set back hopes of opening up a travel bubble with Australia any time soon.

Seselja while speaking in an interview said it was difficult to see any progress at this stage considering the spike in coronavirus cases in Fiji.

“With Fiji in particular, the biggest setback was the most recent outbreak, which you’re all aware of and dealing with,” he said.

“Until it is under control and we see those case numbers come down significantly we can have talks on travel bubble, it’d be difficult to obviously see those progressing,” he said.

He believed that Fiji’s hopeful aspect was the significant and high rates of vaccination which would start to provide protection to the community.

“I think we would look to take potentially baby steps like vacation paradise model before moving to a full bubble and then other arrangements beyond that,” he said.

“But what we could see, as Australia’s population gets vaccinated, I mean, we’re doing now around a million a week, and we anticipate that that will grow considerably in these next couple of months.

“So, as a substantial portion of the Australian population is vaccinated, a substantial portion of the Fijian population is vaccinated. I think there will be the opportunity to see that.”
