TTF urges govts to up cruise in­vest­ment

Cruise Weekly - - News -

THE Tourism and Trans­port Fo­rum (TTF) has urged the NSW and Fed­eral Gov­ern­ments to al­lo­cate more fund­ing for a se­condary berthing op­tion east of the Syd­ney Har­bour Bridge.

“With the NSW Bud­get be­ing handed down (to­day)...it is the time for NSW to con­tinue its push to take full ad­van­tage of the cruise rev­o­lu­tion,” said TTF chief ex­ec­u­tive Margy Os­mond.

“Syd­ney re­mains one of the world’s most pop­u­lar cruis­ing des­ti­na­tions, but port con­ges­tion dur­ing peak sea­sons is im­pact­ing on fu­ture growth of the sec­tor,” she added.

The in­dus­try body is also call­ing on the NSW Gov­ern­ment to con­tinue to de­velop the NSW Cruise De­vel­op­ment Plan, which pro­vides a frame­work for fu­ture cruise in­vest­ment.
