OUT­GO­ING Tas Premier Will Hodg­man paid homage to the state’s tourism in­dus­try in his res­ig­na­tion speech (TD 15 Jan).

“Our mighty tourism in­dus­try... has been at the cen­tre of my govern­ment’s plan”, he said, high­light­ing the in­creased in­vest­ment into events, fes­ti­vals, and eco-tourism at­trac­tions.

“We’ve had the high­est rate of growth in in­ter­na­tional tourists in the coun­try, and we’ve dou­bled the num­ber of in­ter­na­tional vis­i­tors to the state over the last five years.. sup­port­ing lo­cal busi­nesses and em­ploy­ing more Tas­ma­ni­ans”.
