Solomon Host completes successful training in Honiara

By Nina Tuhaika

A new local initiative, Solomon Host, which was co-founded by a leading TARD member Mrs Joyce Konofilia Maetoloa has successfully completed a week-long training in Honiara.

Reports from the Solomon Host headquarter in Honiara said that the "very successful training", completed last Thursday, attracted eleven participants.

"The bulk of the trainees were staff members from SIEA and others from the New Zealand Embassy in Honiara," Solomon Host reported.

The course was conducted after hours from 4-6pm each day to cater for the working trainees.

Solomon Host said trainees have expressed that although the course was very basic, "it has given them new insights and practical skills to do their jobs as front-line people effectively."

Training will continue from 31st March to 4th April.

Solomon Host is a new initiative that strives to improve the quality of services in the Tourism and Hospitality industry in the country.

The initiative is the first of its kind in the Solomons and trainings conducted is recognized by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and Solomon Islands Visitors Bureau.
