In its first 100 days, the new Government must make plans to reopen New Zealand’s borders and issue a $200 domestic Travel Card to every Kiwi.
These initiatives are among five immediate actions that TIA is requesting from the new Government to help revive and revitalise New Zealand’s tourism industry.
Early action from the incoming Government will ensure tourism recovers its place among the biggest contributors to New Zealand’s economy.
In its 100-day plan for Government, we have proposed achievable outcomes that will provide a roadmap to recovery, support tourism businesses and stimulate demand.
Tourism was the first industry to be hit by the pandemic and will be the last to recover. We are grateful for Government support to date and look forward to working with the new Government to grow a sustainable tourism industry that benefits New Zealanders.
The recommendations are drawn from our submission to the Tourism Futures Taskforce.
