TASI Tours & Transportation Inc. on Wednesday reiterated its commitment to the NMI tourism industry.

Tasi Tours president Masato Tezuka also thanked the House of Representatives for honoring his company by adopting House Resolution 21-33.

Authored by Rep. Joseph Leepan Guerrero, H.R. 21-33 commends Tasi Tours for its “outstanding tourism-related services as master concessionaire of Managaha for nearly 31 years.”

Masato said Tasi Tours is proud to do business in the Commonwealth “even though we are now out of the Managaha concession.”

He said the company will remain in the CNMI and will help revive the Japanese tourism market.

Masato said once things are back to normal, “I’m sure that tourists from Japan will come back.”

He expressed his appreciation to CNMI leaders, government agencies, especially the Marianas Visitors Authority, for their cooperation.

MVA Managing Director Priscilla Iakopo, for her part, thanked Tasi Tours on behalf of the MVA board of directors. “You‘ve raised the bar high as master concessionaire of Managaha,” she told Masato, “and you always kept Managaha environmentally safe…and beautiful at all times. We look forward to working with you in other ways as partner of MVA.”

The Department of Public Lands signed an agreement in Aug. 2019 with U-Top, which took over the Managaha concession in Sept. 2019.

Tasi Tours did not submit a bid for a new concession agreement.
