Published on : Friday, May 17, 2019

Sustainable tourism growth is the latest strategy of the Government declared today at Trenz, the biggest and most influential trade event of the industry.

 

For the first time, Conservation Minister Eugenie Sage joined Tourism Minister Kelvin Davis to proclaim the New Zealand-Aotearoa Tourism Strategy.

 

Sage stated that tourism could be a champion for sustainability and restoring the environment.

 

“It is my responsibility to help ensure that we have a sustainable visitor industry that protects and cherishes this natural and cultural heritage for its own sake and for future generations.”

 

She explained that businesses require contributing to giving nature a helping hand.
“We need to help restore our biodiversity because we have more than 4000 species that are threatened or facing extinction.”

 

“That’s what the tourism strategy is all about, helping to protect nature, which is at the hearts of our success as a country and as an industry.”

 

Tourism carries on to be the largest export earner of New Zealand, contributing $39 billion to the economy annually and employing more than 200,000 people.

 

At the declaration, Davis explained the industry as a vital part of lives in regions and within communities.

 

“The Government is determined to put the long-term wellbeing of New Zealanders and the environment at the heart of what we do.”
