Submission | Tourism's 2017-2018 Pre-Budget Submission to Treasury
At a time when many Australian exports are struggling, tourism is booming. Last financial year the tourism sector contributed $53 billion to the Australian economy, up 7.4 per cent from the previous year. And it has enormous potential for future growth – if we get the policy settings right in this highly competitive international market. The 2017-18 Budget provides an opportunity to invest in tourism so that Australia can enjoy the jobs, growth and export income that the sector can generate.
