Ahead of the opening of the Munda International Airport later this year, 60 tour operators have completed Quality Customer Service Training under a new partnership between the Western Province Tourism Association (WPTA) and Strongim Bisnis.
Solomon Islands Discovery Cruises and Strongim Bisnis are partnering to boost cruise tourism in three provinces and provide opportunities for small enterprises along the route to flourish by selling artefacts, food, entertainment and tour guide services to cruise ship passengers.
The Western Province Tourism Association (WPTA) and Strongim Bisnis are in partnership to develop a ‘Western Trail’ to improve the visitor experience and boost opportunities for local tourism operators. In a year-long partnership signed in June 2018 with Strongim Bisnis, WPTA will link a number of natural and cultural-based attractions and tourism activities such as diving, surfing, bird watching, and fishing into a package that they’re calling the Western Trail.
The Central Bank of Solomon Islands has endorsed recommendations made by Strongim Bisnis to the Central Bank’s Loan Guarantee Scheme to improve access to finance for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
