The TRC team was chosen for its knowledge and experience in tourism development in Pacific Countries, following previous work in Samoa, Niue, the Cook Islands, Fiji and others. The TRC Team including Janet Mackay, Ray Salter, Alistair Henchman with Dave Bamford and OSM Consultants, will be supporting the Samoa Tourism Authority in three areas of tourism development: product development, marketing and training. Some of the components of the project include working with stakeholders in Samoa to implement priority improvements in signage and sites and attractions; improving customer research and data; implementing additional market initiatives, enhancing visitor information and providing training and skills development in identified areas.  Expect more updates from the team about the Samoa partnership as the project continues.
