Solomon Islands Tourism Industry Guides for Investors and Government

Solomon Islands has taken a key step in advancing its tourism industry with the launch of a series of guides for investors and the government, to ensure this vital sector remains a long-term driver of job creation, sustainable economic growth and benefits for many people. With the launch of these comprehensive guides, the Solomon Islands Government and IFC have set out clear explanations of how to invest in land for tourism development, how to identify and select land, and have indicated a selection of potential tourism development locations.

Tourism is an important part of the Solomon Islands economy. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, it accounted for 10.5 percent of GDP and generated revenue of US$132.8 million. Notwithstanding setbacks caused by the pandemic, the government is committed to building up the tourism industry and elevating the archipelago to be a prime Pacific Islands tourist destination.
