The Australian Hotels Association supports tourism budget of WA

Published on : Wednesday, May 15, 2019

The Australian Hotels Association (WA) praises the McGowan Government’s long standing commitment to the Tourism Two-Year Action Plan. It’s delivering results for WA tourism. The plan welcomes the additional $12 million for foreign destination marketing and $10 million for international aviation development to secure more direct flights to Perth.

 

To quote AHA(WA) CEO Bradley Woods, “WA’s hotels and hospitality businesses would receive long term benefits from today’s budget.”

 

“The $182.4 million investment for a new Employer Incentive Scheme will greatly assist employers to engage more apprentices and trainees, which are critically important for the state’s hotels and hospitality workforce,” Mr. Woods said.

 

“Today’s budget shows the state’s finances are heading in the right direction with a strengthening fiscal position, government debt being reigned in and cost of living increases being kept to a minimum.”

 

“For the tourism and hospitality industry, the budget contains some very welcome measures including a significant investment in international destination marketing and additional funds to secure more direct flights into Perth.”

 

“The recent visitation data has WA moving in the right direction and so it is pleasing to see the necessary investments being made to ensure this momentum continues.”

 

“Providing additional incentives to employers to take on more apprentices and trainees will greatly assist businesses to offset the costs of engaging WA’s future workforce and this will be warmly welcomed by the hotel and hospitality industry.”
