Relationship with GovernmentThe foundation for the TICT's working relationship with the Government of the day is our Protocol Agreement. Under the Agreement the TICT has enjoyed a close working relationship with subsequent Governments in pursuing our common vision for the industry which is set down in the Tourism 21 strategic business plan. Tourism 21 provides the strategic direction and blue-print for action to improve the performance, competitiveness and structural efficiency of the tourism industry in Tasmania.
Forged in 1997 as a benchmark joint industry and State Government 10-year strategic plan, Tourism 21 has provided the focus and the strategic framework for what is today a vibrant $1.74 billion Tasmanian industry supporting 38,000 jobs.
In 2013 we launched an update Tourism 21 for 2013-2016. Tourism 21’s current goal is to increase annual visitor spending in Tasmania form $1.48 billion in 2013, to $2.1 billion by 2021. In addition, the Tourism Industry Council Tasmania and the current Hodgman State Government have signed a memorandum of understanding, with a shared goal to increase visitor numbers to Tasmania to 1.5million by 2020.
In 2014, Tourism Industry Council Tasmania and the Tasmania Parks & Wildlife Service officially launched ‘Parks 21’. This landmark agreement between the Tasmanian tourism industry and the Tasmania Parks & Wildlife Service, for the first time in Tasmania, establishes a shared vision with clear goals and priorities for the growth and management of nature-based and eco-tourism within Tasmania’s national parks and reserves.
The TICT is committed to ensuring tripartisanship continues as a key plank for tourism policy in Tasmania, and the organisation maintains its commitment to briefing all Members of State Parliament, including the Opposition, Greens and Members of the Legislative Council on key issues.
