Fiji 7th on tourists ranking
Fiji is ranked the seventh best tourist destination in the world after Italy which was ranked as the number one destination in a recent global survey. The survey results were showed by the University of Queensland academic, Doctor Jeff Wilks, at the 50th Fiji Law Society annual convention. Dr Wilks, who is in the country to review its Tourism Industry Master Plan, said it was really impressive that Fiji was able to attain a high rating from tourists around the globe. He said the ratings were based on available statistics about airport arrivals, capacity, a global survey and future forecasts from tourism experts all over the world. The top destination countries were Italy, Australia and the United States.
