Politicians talk tourism

Tourism events blog 

With WA diversifying into tourism, CCI and Tourism Council WA have teamed up so business can hear from Liberal and Labor on what they’ll offer the future of tourism.

CCI and Tourism Council WA will co-host breakfasts with the leaders from both major political parties as part of a series of events ahead of the state election.

“Tourism is shaping up as a key election issue ahead of the state poll on 11 March, with voters asking where new jobs will be coming from, particularly as the mining sector slows,” Tourism Council WA CEO Evan Hall says.

“The tourism industry is already a key driver of employment in the State, creating 97,000 diverse jobs for the people of WA each year.

“However, for the industry to grow and provide increasing jobs, increased and consistent funding commitments are required.

“The upcoming Tourism Election Series of events presents an opportunity to hear from the major parties on how they plan to grow tourism in the future.”

Hear from Opposition Leader Mark McGowan and Opposition Tourism Spokesperson Paul Papalia at the first event on 28 February at Perth Arena from 7.30am.

Premier and Tourism Minister Colin Barnett will headline the second event, along with Environment and Heritage Minister Albert Jacob.

This event will be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre on 3 March, just days out from the election.
