The only thing they need to and get the industry going is working in partnership.
Mr Tuamoto highlighted this during a meeting organized by SIVB for all tourism operators in Marau Sound on Saturday.
The meeting was held at the Marau Sound Airport Hall on.
About 50 tourism operators got together for the meeting.
Mr Tuamoto told the operators that Marau has beautiful people, beaches, sea and place to convert into tourism.
“What all of you need to understand here is that tourism is everybodies’ business not only for marine protected area (MPA),” Mr Tuamoto said.
The former Fiji visitors bureau CEO said Marau have all the existing infrastructures that a tourism industry needs like communication, airport and wharf.
Mr Tuamoto also highlighted the connection between protecting the marine area and using them for snorkelling and diving.
He encouraged the operators and the people to protect their marine areas.
