“About 2000 Australian tourists will grace on our shores on Friday morning and I’m therefore calling on the general public in Honiara to show them respect and give your best smiles while they are on our shores.
“This is an important occasion for our city and we must ensure to show our respect and culture to them because this year and beyond more cruise ships will be visiting Solomon Islands,” Mr Fatai said.
