Operators want update on tourism funding

03 April 2014

Tourism operators in Marau, east Guadalcanal have urged the ministry of tourism and culture to explain how the tourism funding for the constituency was allocated.

More than 50 operators raised this during a meeting held between them by Solomon Island visitors bureau (SIVB) over the weekend.

The operators who were happy with the SIVB visit said they want officials from the ministry to visit them and explain the process to access the funds.

Not only that, but to provide training.

“We have many questions related to the tourism funding and training and we want the ministry to come down and explain us the procedure.”

The ministry yesterday said they are planning to visit all operators around the country soon to address such concerns.
