Accommodation business to expand in the tourism industry
From an article in the Fiji Times. The accommodation sector in the tourism industry is expected to expand to meet the demand of the current upward trend in tourist arrivals. The rise in the accommodation sector had been evident in the investments made by major tourism consortiums in developing hotels along the Coral Coast. In respect of the many smaller hotels and guest houses which usually accommodate low budget travellers and backpackers, travellers and visitors within this niche market often travel and find accommodation in areas outside the urban periphery. These comments are attributed to a member of parliament in the current debate on proposals to amend the Hotels and Guest Houses Act.
