Good to be back (and in the black!)

29 /04/ 2016 Comments are Closed

Greetings everyone. As you may be aware, I have resumed my role at VTIC, and I am pleased to be back. I am grateful for the experience, acting as GM Regional at Tourism Victoria, as I gained invaluable insights and learnt a lot in the process.

Undertaking this position further highlighted the value placed by policymakers on the insights from VTIC and industry to governance, as we work together to drive and grow Victoria’s Visitor Economy.

This week’s handing down of the 2016-17 Victorian State Budget was a fitting example of the importance of collaboration between industry and government to determine State funded priorities, as we move forward together to realise the growth potential in our sector.

We were pleased with the outcomes of the State Budget for the Visitor Economy. State Government has followed through with significant allocations which align with our pre-budget submission, namely, increased visitor spending in regional Victoria, and investing in tourism assets across the state. Please refer to the link below for our summary for members. This signalled a recognition of the partnership role industry can play, and that our voice is being heard.

Although the recent announcements are pleasing, we mustn’t rest on our laurels. VTIC will continue to advocate on behalf of industry for more strategic investment in the sector and for initiatives that lower business costs and highlight the significant jobs potential of our $20 billion sector.

Chief Executive, Dianne Smith.
