Visitor arrivals increase by 9pc

The tourism industry continues to record positive growth as the number of visitor arrivals increased by 9 per cent (to 125,056 visitors) cumulative to February from the 114,736 visitors noted in the same period last year.

The Reserve Bank of Fiji in its March Economic Review said the outcome was largely underpinned by higher arrivals from New Zealand and North America source market, fell for the third consecutive month.

The Central Bank stated that on the back of record high visitor arrivals noted last year along with higher per-diems, tourism earnings for 2023 stood at $2,367.7 million.

This is 14.6 and 57.9 per cent higher than the $2,065.5 million and $1,499.3 million earned in 2019 and 2022 respectively.

In 2024, the growth in tourism earnings is greatly underpinned by the growth in visitor arrivals.
