More than a third of Australia’s tourism businesses are anxious about forced close down

More than a third of Australia’s tourism businesses are anxious that they might be forced to close within three months, as per a new industry research.


The sector is worried regarding the ambiguity over the reopening of state borders and that a very slow reopening of the international border will create problems for many businesses.


While some pockets of the industry have performed well during the pandemic, supported by domestic travelers unable to travel abroad, many have struggled big time.


Margy Osmond from the Tourism and Transport Forum is worried that as Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra surface from lockdown, and the national economy begins to bounce back, the challenges facing the sector will not be taken seriously.


“We’re like the poor second cousins of most of the other industries in this country, and we do need some sort of ongoing support. For the next six months at least,” Osmond said.
