GIZO Tourism and the province’s Culture division will publish their quarterly Newsletter on Tourism at Gizo and other parts of the province this month.
This was confirmed by the Western Provincial Chief of Tourism office Jefferson Patovaki during an interview with Island Sun in Gizo yesterday.
Mr Patovaki said the aim of the Newsletter is to give information to the public concerning tourism issues in Western province.
He said the name of the Newsletter is ‘Tourism Bazubazu’ and that the current provincial executive and members of the Provincial government have already approved.
Patovaki said the title, taken from the original native language from Vella La Vella Island; means ‘transform and tell information’.
He said the Newsletter will be distributed around Solomon Islands’ hotels, rest houses, resorts, schools, communities and other places to pass the information concerning Tourism and Culture.
Western province has different islands altogether with different cultures and traditions but the Division has chosen the one language originated from the Western Province.
Meanwhile, Patovaki said the division is currently working with the first issue that will be based mainly on tourism in the Western province and that the paper is now in the pipeline.
