Australian tourism marriage equalityAustralian tourism would receive a massive push if marriage equality gets legalized in Australia, as explained by Anthony Albanese, Labor’s Shadow Minister for Tourism.

Albanese points out that wedding ceremonies, honeymoons and tourism from international tourists would be helping the economy of Australia. At present, Australia is behind New Zealand as couples from Australia head to other foreign lands for wedding.

“Take for example the fact that 270 Australian couple in same-sex relationships got married last year in New Zealand alone. That’s foregone revenue to Australia of the ceremonies that took place, the after honeymoons and other activities that take place. That’s jobs forgone here in Australia.”

Albanese highlighted that portion of the discussion about marriage equality should comprise the economic benefits.

“I think part of the debate , that will be taking place as people think about whether they’ll support marriage equality in this postal survey, should be, not just about the individuals, but our national economy.

“There’s a real argument about why it’s an important boost to our economy if marriage economy occurs.” Albanese said. Australian Marriage Equality had calculated before that the launch of marriage equality could provide a $700 million boost up to the country’s economy.
