New Zealand experiences a tourism boom with more international visitors

Published on : Monday, June 12, 2017

tourism newzealandNew Zealand has been seeing a great boom in the number of international visitors. International travellers are delivering around $40 million in foreign exchange across the country’s economy every day of the year.

Tourism directly supports more than 180,000 jobs across NZ, often in places where few other work opportunities exist. The tourism industry of NZ provides colour and vibrancy to the communities. Many of the country’s shops, restaurants, bars and cafes are wholly dependent on travellers, both international and domestic.

Also, thousands of New Zealanders are heading off for their own overseas holidays.

However, of late, there are more international visitors (and more domestic travellers too) and this is putting pressure on some of the most popular destinations of NZ at peak times. It is also changing the appeal of few of those “hidden gems” where New Zealanders are used to having a quiet time.

New Zealand is the world’s 65th most visited country. It is ranked 72nd for ratio of visitors to local residents, and 107th for ratio of visitors to land area.

A lot of work is in progress, across both the public and private sectors, to tackle the big issues like infrastructure needs and workforce requirements, and to respond to genuine public concerns about responsible camping and visiting drivers.
