TIA's tourism tips for NZ Govt

In Tourism Industry Aotearoa’s recent brief to new Tourism Minister Kelvin Davis, TIA pointed out that tourism is New Zealand’s fastest growing economic contributor, as well as its biggest industry, biggest employer and biggest export sector.
The brief identified some immediate priorities for industry and Government to partner on.

It also makes 24 specific recommendations to the new government that would see tourism increasing its contribution to New Zealand’s economy if implemented.

‘It’s a lengthy but very achievable list of outcomes,’ says TIA chief executive Chris Roberts.
The industry’s immediate priorities are engagement, sustainability, infrastructure, people & skill and funding.
‘We look forward to discussing these priorities further with Minister Davis and his cabinet colleagues,’ says Roberts.
‘On the back of record tourism growth, there are many opportunities and challenges for the government and industry to tackle together.’
