The New South Wales (NSW) Tourism Industry has warmly welcomed the NSW Government’s $40 million in new funding over 3 years towards the NSW Tourism Industry.

“Today’s funding announcement, together with the release of the O’Neill Report into NSW Tourism and the announcement of the development of a NSW Tourism Plan, will give new hope and impetus to the entire NSW tourism industry,” said Ken Corbett, acting chair of Tourism Industry Council NSW (TICNSW).

TICNSW represents over 10,000 businesses across the $30 billion NSW tourism industry. The industry association incorporates members including industry sector associations, regional tourism organizations, local government tourist offices and major tourist attractions and suppliers.

“The industry welcomes today’s announcement as a direct and unequivocal response to the demand from across our industry for a renewal of the NSW Government’s commitment to tourism after 15 years of neglect,” said Mr. Corbett.

“The industry showed its united purpose last year by producing a report under the banner of The Tourism Business Alliance, which incorporated all major players in the NSW tourism industry. Today’s announcements are a welcome response to the needs outlined in that report, and while today’s success will have many fathers, it truly does belong to a united and forward looking NSW tourism industry,” said Mr. Corbett.
