With a focus on furthering Canberra’s relationships with Qatar Airways and Singapore Airlines to further grow inbound international tourism, the ACT Government delegation headed by the Chief Minister visited Singapore and London last week.
The visit also aimed at focusing on attracting banks to invest in ACT Government bonds and increasing ties with overseas cultural institutions.
The United Kingdom is the second largest inbound tourism market for the ACT, with thirty five percent growth in the last five years.
This growth has been possible through the ease of connectivity on both Singapore Airlines and Qatar Airways. The delegation met with market representatives of both airlines to further grow awareness of Canberra as a tourism destination.
Mathew Trinca, Director of the National Museum, joined the delegation to further build on the existing collaboration and MoU between the National Museum of Australia and the British Museum.
