If there was ever an opening ceremony that was so good that it made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up then it has to be this weeks’ official opening of Fijian Tourism Expo.
Introduced by James Sowane, head of Pacific Destinations, a leading inbound operator and ground handles in Fiji and sponsor of the opening, the musical and cultural performance at the beginning of the event was one not only full of passion and focussed on the indigenous Fijian and Indian immigrant culture and history of Fiji, but more than that, it showed Fiji’s determination to be truly Fijian, integrating Fijian and Indian music and dance into an exciting and highly professional show.
The Fijian dancers and singers and performers came from Mr Sowane’s own village, with the event showcasing the true Fiji, one that it is hoped can be replicated into Fiji’s tourism industry and potentially also used to promote Fiji around the world.
