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."
