Tasmania’s tourism minister, Scott Bacon, has welcomed participants for this week’s inaugural meeting of the state’s new Access Group.
The group has been established to provide expert advice to the minister about improving access to Tasmania.
It features key stakeholders, including representatives from the Tasmanian Hospitality Association, the Tourism Industry Council of Tasmania, and the Tasmanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
“Tasmania has some rare advantages and challenges as an island community. Access to and from the state is obviously a critical issue for the tourism sector, and the Tasmanian economy more broadly,” Mr Bacon said.
“It was certainly encouraging to see a diverse mix of experience and expertise around the table. There was no shortage of energy and commitment, when it comes to further improving access to our state.”
