Record spending in tourism exceeding $100 billion - creating Australian jobs

Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, Steven Ciobo, says spending by international and domestic visitors grew by $5.6 billion last year, with spending by Australian and international tourists exceeding $100 billion for the first time. The National Visitor Survey for the year ending December 2016 shows Australian visitors spent $61 billion. Minister Ciobo says 'the recently released International Visitor Survey showed international visitors spent $39.1 billion in the same 12 month period. This record spending is creating Australian jobs. Tourism is a $120 billion industry that employs around 1 in 12 Australians, so this growth in holiday spending means more jobs, more investment and more prosperity for all Australians, especially those in regional Australia, where 45 per cent of tourist dollars are spent."

Sydney’s International Convention Centre (ICC Sydney) at Darling Harbour has been named Australia’s best infrastructure project at the Infrastructure Partnerships Australia’s National Infrastructure Awards. Andrew Constance Minister for Transport and Infrastructure welcomed the award saying the ICC was a jewel in the NSW Government’s infrastructure crown. “I am extremely proud that this Government has delivered a world class transformation to the Darling Harbour precinct with the stunning International Convention Centre at its heart,” Mr Constance said. “ICC Sydney cements Sydney as a premium choice on the world stage for major events that this nation has never before had the facilities to host. “The NSW Government remains focused on the delivery of infrastructure that transforms our state and has a positive impact on our economy. The ICC certainly delivers on this.” The $1.5 billion ICC Sydney was recognised for its design excellence, construction timeline and outstanding financial performance as well as delivering the nation a new and emblematic piece of business events and tourism infrastructure. The convention centre officially opened in December 2016 and has already hosted over 170 major events including the Fast 4 Tennis Showdown and performances by Keith Urban and Nick Cave. The convention centre is also generating significant international interest with 115 global events confirmed for Sydney over the next few years.
