The foreign minister might regularly go tut-tut about Commodore Frank Bainimarama and his illegal hold on power in Fiji but ordinary Australians apparently don’t care too much. Figures out from the Australian Bureau of Statistics this morning show that Australian visits to Fiji have grown by an average of 10.3% a year from 1999-2000 to 2009-2010. That’s only just behind the 13.5% growth rate of tourism to China and 11.3% to Thailand.
