MDF Timor-Leste is facilitating closer collaboration between government and the private sector to support cruise ship tourism. The facilitation role follows MDF’s 2016 partnership with local tour operator Dive, Trek and Camp. To reinforce the benefits of cruise ship tourism MDF, together with The Asia Foundation, the Office of the Minister of State, Coordinating for Economic Affairs (MECAE) and the Ministry for Tourism, Arts & Culture (MTAC) produced a report on the economic impact of cruise ship tourism. A summary of the findings are presented in this infographic.

PNG has navigated its way through customs constraints and insurance issues to encourage growth in this sector and now has 26 cruise ships docking in its tourist hotspots every year. The delegation are traveling to Alotau today to understand how they can progress tourism in their countries
