NZ aids Niue tourism

From , 3:04 pm on 16 June 2017

New Zealand Prime Minister Bill English has opened new tourism facilities and unveiled plans to improve services for Niue households during a brief stopover yesterday.

Mr English said new facilities at the island's only hotel, the Matavai Resort, would help establish Niue as an event and conference venue.

He said it is part of a plan to spread tourist visits over the year, to reduce the environmental impact and to extend the benefits for the local economy.
