Samoa Tourism Forum - Annual Review and Pre-Forum Workshop

The Samoa Tourism Sector Plan is in place for a period of five (5) years.  As part of tracking progress of the five priority areas identified by the tourism sector, the Annual Review process is undertaken to reflect on what the sector has achieved, what are the lessons learned and identifying potential alternatives to address issues and challenges faced during the period.  

The Annual Review process for the sector plan basically is a tool to inform the sector (including Government, Civil etc) and feedback will inform future action plans to be undertaken for the next implementation phase.  This year's annual review will reflect on the FY 2014/2015.
