Tonga Agritourism Policy Setting Workshop 2018

Aperçu de l'événement

A two-day Agritourism Policy Setting Workshop takes place in Nukualofa on 7th & 8th August 2018. It is organised by the Government of Tonga in collaboration with CTA, the Pacific Community, PIPSO, IFAD, and SPTO.

The objective of the agritourism project is to promote sustainable use of local food by the tourism industry through a favourable agritourism policy in Tonga. It brings together all key stakeholders in the agriculture, tourism, trade and health sectors, including government ministries, agribusinesses, agro-producers, chefs, farmers’ organisations and technical organisations, with the aim of developing further linkages between agriculture, trade and tourism sectors to support local businesses in serving tourism-related markets in Tonga. 

The workshop is organised by the Government of Tonga in collaboration with CTA, the Pacific Island Private Sector Organisation (PIPSO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the South Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO), and the Pacific Community (SPC). 

This workshop builds on the positive experiences of the Solomon Islands, FijiVanuatu and Samoa , where the national governments, together with CTA and partners, also organised successful Agritourism Policy Setting Workshops in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
