Asking for investment to sustainable tourism in New Zealand

Published on : Friday, January 13, 2017

New ZealandThough New Zealand is considered one of the preferred holiday destinations among many, Jucy CEO Tim Alpe thinks different. Alpe believes that major investment is required to take tourism of this country to further heights and sustain its development. Alpe extensively travels to US and Australia throughout the year in promoting New Zealand and Jucy to the world.

To quote Alpe, “People just want to come… it’s just New Zealand, New Zealand, New Zealand. The events that are happening in Europe, elections in the US… make New Zealand a place which people think is safe, it’s a bucket list [destination].”

In order to meet the increasing demands, more and more investment is required according to Alpe. Better accommodation facilities, key development in infrastructure that involves public toilets, facilities and roads in various smaller centers of the country. To quote Alpe, “This stuff is expensive, and it does have to paid for,” Alpe says. People are throwing out different ideas, like bed tax and taxes around activities that people are going to use, that are quite common overseas. Whether bed tax is the right thing to do here, I don’t know, that’s still open for discussion.” However, a new hotel at Christchurch International Airport and cruise boat in the Milford Sound are the latest additions on part of Jucy.
