Tourism and the Sustainable Development Goal 4

Tourism provides an opportunity to empower Pacific people through improved access to quality education and vocational training. The future of tourism in the Pacific hinges on the ability of our Pacific island countries to deliver quality services that exceed visitors’ expectations. Tourism therefore requires a skilled, well-trained and motivated workforce to bridge the gap between industry demand for qualified and skilled staff and what is available locally.
