The CEO of New Zealand’s tourism agency ‘Jucy’, Tim Alpe, who visits the countries like Australia and the United States in order to promote New Zealand and Jucy, has informed that the events that are happening in Europe, elections in the US, make New Zealand a place which people think is safe, it’s a bucket list destination for them. He believes that the country needs more investment in the tourism sector, in order to sustain the boom.
According to Alpe, in the major tourism hubs of the country, more accommodation, public facilities, clean public toilets and smooth roads need to be installed, which are really expensive and the government needs to pay for them.
Several government officials of the country have come up with ideas like imposing a bed tax and other taxes on the other activities but most of the ideas are still open for discussion.
The travel data shows that in mere two years, over 3.4 million travellers visited the country of New Zealand, which eventually helped the annual revenue for the tourism sector to grow from $28 billion to $34.7 billion. It can be easily said that the tourism sector of the country is experiencing a busy time and it is most certain that the country needs more investment to hold on to the tourism growth.
