New Zealand needs a national tourism strategy

Published on : Wednesday, June 20, 2018

New ZealandA national tourism taskforce is needed for New Zealand. Federated Mountain Clubs (FMC) is asking the country’s government to establish a working group to plan for a genuinely sustainable tourism industry that ensures international visitors’ enjoyment and the goodwill of New Zealanders.

 
Tourism is best when community and environment are in good heart – but things could easily get out of hand. Warnings include industry expansion into beautiful untamed places, ratepayers’ discontent at their towns’ reorientation around visitors and widespread traffic-and-toilets woes.

 
Last year, Thailand’s Maya Bay and the Philippines’ Boracay have witnessed closures and Barcelona residents have marched to protest against visitor overcrowding.

 
Authorities in those locations have charted out remedies to tackle problems.

 
A national tourism strategy is more than well-organized layers of harm-mitigation.
Underlying necessary bureaucracy and practicalities are some of the fundamental things that should be accepted unblinkingly.
