Release

The Government has allocated $19.6 million in funding for tourism infrastructure projects around the country, so local communities can feel the benefits of a healthy tourism sector, rather than the pressure it can create, Tourism Minister Kelvin Davis announced today.

“We can’t keep judging someone by the worst mistake they’ve ever made - or there would be a hell of a lot more of us inside.”

Speech

Good morning everyone and thank you all for the warm welcome.

Speech

“I had never been hit or abused, until the day the men came to take me away.  I still don’t even know why.”

Speech

As a Government we need to find a way to provide sustainable funding to invest in both our Tourism Infrastructure and our Conservation estate. We don’t believe that the financial burden should rest purely on the shoulders of New Zealanders. Today I am launching a discussion document on an International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy.

Speech

Today I am announcing that we will build a world-leading 500 bed facility here at Waikeria alongside a 100 bed mental health unit that is the first of its kind in New Zealand.
