On July 29 (FRI), the International Organization Pacific Islands Center will hold a seminar entitled “Pacific Islands Journey ~ Cook Islands and Niue ~”.
The Cook Islands and Niue are part of the Polynesian region of the South Pacific and maintain a free association with the NZ. Japan recognized the Cook Islands as a state in 2011 and Niue as a state in 2015. As it is a very new country, it is not highly recognized in Japan, but it is already popular in the NZ and Australia as one of the best tourist destinations in both countries.
The webinar will focus on tourism, the main industry of both countries. The post-Corona activities and current situation in Cook Islands and Niue will be presented.
The outline of the seminar is as follows.
