WA Tourism is confident to survive the corona fight

Published on : Tuesday, March 24, 2020

The $66 billion financial support package declared by the Australian Prime Minister has been welcomed by the Tourism Council WA as vital move for the tourism to keep the sector alive and finally recover from the blow, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.


Chief Executive Officer, Evan Hall explained that the package responded to the main points put forward by Tourism Council WA in the last few weeks, like the assistance for sole traders, SMEs and casual employees in the tourism industry.


“We are now analysing the details of today’s economic support package and how it will apply to tourism businesses facing mass cancellations and non-existent forward bookings, while still needing to pay bills and put food on the table,” Mr. Hall said.


“If the package offers insufficient protection for tourism businesses, including sole traders, we will continue to advocate for further measures.”


“The tourism industry is determined to survive the COVID-19 pandemic.”


Also, Tourism Council WA supports the decision of the State Government to hung up interstate travel.


“During these unprecedented times, the tourism industry understands that public health should be everyone’s top priority,” Mr. Hall said.


“We will work with the State Government to assist with accommodation for interstate visitors within WA, such as self-drive tourists, and returning Western Australians requiring self-isolation, affected by the border measures.”


The businesses related to tourism are providing facilities ranging from hotels and motels to caravans and motor homes to help people accept self-isolating.


Mr. Hall explained that the sector had done a nice job executing the restrictions on gatherings and social distancing in the first weekend and would carry on doing so to provide customer service in a safe environment while permitted to do so.
