All the latest news from Fiji – International Day of Happiness, Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course and Fiji Airlines heading to Adelaide
It is International Day of Happiness this week (Monday 20th March) which is a United Nations initiative introduced in 2011 that recognises ‘the pursuit of happiness as a fundamental human goal’. As the only nation in the world to be an accredited partner, Tourism Fiji will be sharing stories via social media channels to a global audience about what makes Fiji such a happy place. A competition has also been running during this period and a dedicated microsite where users can vote on Fijian experiences that they feel best represent ‘where happiness finds you’.
Matt Stoeckel, CEO of Tourism Fiji says: “Fiji is the place where happiness finds you and the hospitality extended its visitors is world renown. Tourism Fiji recognizes the synergies with the International Day of Happiness and through this partnership will showcase to the rest of the world what makes Fiji such a happy place.”
