ASVB CAN BOOST TOURISM WITH MORE AGGRESSIVE MARKETING AND PROMOTION

Tourism needs to be improved in the Territory. To achieve that, communication between the American Samoa Visitors Bureau (ASVB) and the private sector must be improved so that everyone involved in the tourism industry and the Territory as a whole, will benefit.
 
The ASBV must also initiate and participate in events to aggressively promote and market American Samoa as a tourist destination like the Samoa Tourism Exchange that took place this week in Apia.
 
This is according to the managing director of Oceania Travel & Tours, Sulu Malifa.
