Peak Tourism Body Supports State Visitor Economy Plan 2030

South Australia’s peak tourism body, The Tourism Industry Council South Australia (TiCSA) supports the State Visitor Economy Plan 2030, released by the Government of South Australia.

TiCSA CEO Shaun de Bruyn says it is great to see the government prioritising tourism and the visitor economy as an economic driver for the state.

“Implementation of the plan is critical and through a strong industry and government partnership we will deliver significant prosperity for our state and many thousands of jobs, with a great percentage of these jobs being in our regions,” Mr de Bruyn said.

“That said, industry will continue to advocate for the State Government to co-invest with industry on future growth priorities, including business and workforce development.

“This is particularly critical now that this ambitious target has been set. The government needs to increase its level of co-investment to help generate the identified growth opportunity of $5.6 billion and an additional 16,000 jobs by 2030,” he concluded.

Tourism in South Australia currently employs more than 36,000 people and generates $7.2 billion for the state economy annually. TiCSA represents more than 900 tourism businesses across the state.
