Government adds funds to Qld recovery

first_imgQueensland tourism will receive an extra AU$2 million from the government, increasing the state’s marketing recovery fund post flood and cyclone up to AU$12 million. The Federal and Queensland Governments will donate an extra AU$1 million each, adding on to the AU$10 million that was funded to suppress embellished news that the entire state was flooded. Federal Tourism Minister Martin Ferguson said the money would be spent on domestic and interstate trade shows, technology workshops and recovery workshops to assist tourism operators boost their business. “Australia and the world need to know that Queensland’s tourism industry is strong and open for business,” Mr Ferguson said.”We want to strengthen Queensland tourism businesses and help them promote themselves – and the entire state as a prime tourism destination.” According to Queensland Minister for Tourism, Manufacturing and Small Business Jan Jarratt, there is a common misconception that the entire state’s tourism has been affected by recent flooding and Cyclone Yasi. “In some cases this perception is damaging business more than the extreme weather events – many small to medium tourism operators are struggling to stay afloat following cancellations and a downturn in bookings,” Ms Jarratt said. “However, the fact is the majority of Queensland’s tourism regions have suffered minimal or no damage and the majority of those affected are now open and operating normally.”The funding will also be used to develop trade advisory support for small and medium sized companies as well as capacity-building programs and workshops for the domestic and international market.
