The Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO) has contracted Rosie Holidays to conduct training programmes for selected Small Island States and Territories (SIST) in the region. Focused on Inbound Travel Management and Small and Micro Enterprise Business Recovery, the trainings are part of a joint CROP programme on capacity building for Small Island States, between Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat and SPTO.
Given the prolonged impacts of COVID 19, the two trainings will be delivered virtually and made available to the following countries; American Samoa, Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Rapa Nui, Tokelau, Tuvalu and Wallis & Futuna.
In acknowledging the importance of this support for SIST members, SPTO Chief Executive, Christopher Cocker, also acknowledged the importance of partnering with Rosie Holidays to deliver the virtual trainings.
“This work is very important to SPTO as we value our SIST members, all of whom have unique challenges and needs which require well thought out and specifically tailored support”.
“Rosie Holidays has been a strong advocate for regional tourism and a loyal private sector member of SPTO so I am very pleased to be partnering with them to deliver these trainings. We have many private sector members who have been hard hit by COVID-19 so providing support and business opportunities to them and other tourism stakeholders is of great importance to us”, he said.
It is envisaged that the trainings will be delivered from February through to 31st July 2021 and will conclude with the development of recommendations on how the project can be delivered to other Pacific Island Countries.
