Fiji last week reactivated its Tourism Action Group to spur recovery. "The four-week-long impasse and the change in government has been peaceful, with the tourism industry functioning normally," noted Viliame "Bill" Gavoka, chief executive of the Fiji Visitors Bureau. The committee will be led by Damend Gounder of Tour Managers and president of the Society of Fiji Travel Associates (SOFTA). The group's international committee will comprise Joe Tuamoto, FVB director of marketing, Tony Whitton of Rosie's Holidays representing SOFTA, Bill Whiting of Bedbank, Aaron McGrath of Sonaisali Island Resort representing hoteliers, and a representative of Air Pacific.
