Accompanied by the Tourism Industry Executives earlier this week, Minister Koya said Ratu Sailosi played a tremendous role in boosting Fiji’s tourism sector in the Western division.

KOYA: “He was a staunch supporter for socioeconomic development for Nadi and was someone we all came to ask for advice given his background in the tourism industry where he worked for a number of years.”

“He was very keen on the developments of the tourism industry and always supported youth development in the vanua o Navatulevu.”

Minister Koya said the fatherly figure of the tourism industry would be missed, and the tourism industry would also feel the loss.

KOYA: “Our deepest condolences to the vanua and also to the chiefly family especially the Late Tui Nadi’s wife and children.”

Tui Nadi died at the Lautoka hospital last week Tuesday after a short illness.
