FROM THE EDI­TOR

Ruapehu Press - - Your Local News -

There is a fair bit of ac­tiv­ity at the mo­ment in the tourism sec­tor and the con­ser­va­tion estate.

The Depart­ment of Con­ser­va­tion is repo­si­tion­ing it­self to bet­ter align with lo­cal iwi and make the most of its re­sources.

On the front page to­day we take a look at its plans to shift re­sources and tar­get those ar­eas where it feels it will make the most im­pact.

Mean­while on page 9 we look at the lat­est Tourism NZ campaign that is tempt­ing Aussies across the ditch with some of the unique of­fer­ings in the Cen­tral North Is­land.

And the Na­tional i-site Visi­tor In­for­ma­tion Net­work Con­fer­ence is be­ing held up at the Chateau next month. That is also bound to in­crease the level of tourism ac­tiv­ity in our part of the world.

Tourism is a vi­tal part of the econ­omy in this re­gion but it does bring its stresses and strains - on roads and emer­gency ser­vices and the en­vi­ron­ment.

I get the feel­ing some of our best kept secrets won’t be se­cret for long.
