Niue's self famil programme for retail agents and wholesalers has had a 100% positive feedback rate, according to Niue Tourism's senior tourism development manager Hayden Porter. 'We've had 70 agents through in the last year and its been unbelievable to the point that agents are coming back at their own expense,' say Porter.
Infrastructure development to the tune of $1m continues to roll out complementing the half million dollar visitor centre that was built last year. Walking tracks, picnic tables, public toilets, village and wharf beautification are all aimed at improving the visitor experience in Niue.
Porter and his colleague Vanessa Marsh were flying the Niue flag in New Zealand recently, including on Auckland's Waitemata Harbour when the Volvo ocean yachts were preparing for their southern ocean leg.
