State Election Tourism Priorities

On the basis of our earlier pre-budget submission and guided by the feedback from our members, we have submitted a summarised tourism priority list for the next term of the Queensland Government. We firmly believe that a vibrant tourism and hospitality sector must be a bi-partisan priority and we always urge all elected representatives to build on success and the strong collaborative spirit that exists in our industry. 

Over the last decade, the partnership between successive State Governments and the industry has produced many innovative and successful tourism initiatives, programs and investments. Now is the time to build on those measures that have worked and respond to the current challenges decisively and with determination. An investment in Queensland’s tourism will yield rich returns in jobs, regional development and community building.  Now is the time to focus on Queensland’s strength and build a prosperous post-COVID future.
