Vanuatu's Prime Minister Sato Kilman has opened the largest ever Tok Tok Vanuatu in Port Vila today.

The annual two-day event brings overseas tourism wholesalers to one central venue to talk with local tourist operators.

Tok Tok Vanuatu is organised by the National Tourism Office with the assistance of the hospitality industry to market Vanuatu as the favourite tourist destination for visitors.

The tourism office's general manager says this year's gathering has attracted more than 50 buyers, 70 sellers and five overseas media organisations.

Linda Kalpoi says Tok Tok Vanuatu is the most significant event on the country's tourism calendar.
