Tourism Infrastructure

Pre-pandemic, TIA undertook significant research that identified the public and private infrastructure investment required for the long-term management of tourism in New Zealand. A particular area of concern was local and mixed-use infrastructure, used by both visitors and local residents. With borders closing, this pressure was relieved, but it is important to retain a long-term view and continue investing in the infrastructure needed by both the visitor and resident economies. TIA supports retention of a government infrastructure fund to assist this investment.
