Vanuatu agri-tourism linkages: a baseline study of agri demand from Port Vila's hospitality sector
Summary of publication
This study aims to analyze the purchasing patterns of Vanuatu's tourism sector, in order to better understand existing linkages between the tourism and agricultural sectors, and to identify opportunities to improve these linkages. The study has been conducted by the International Finance Corporation, a member of the World Bank Group.
The data in this report can be used by the Government of Vanuatu, its donor partners, and the agricultural industry to develop, fund and implement the policies and practices required to increase economic linkages between tourism operators and agricultural producers. Increasing local food production can improve Vanuatu's trade balance, increase food security, and help to more evenly share the benefits of a growing tourism sector across Vanuatu's population, which remains chiefly employed in small-scale agricultural production.
