The Federal Government is helping to rebuild Australia's tourism workforce by offering State and Territory governments and tourism bodies a share of $7.5 million for programs to attract workers to the visitor economy.
The Choose Tourism program is among a number of measures, working in partnership with industry, aimed at helping to address workforce shortages across the tourism sector.
Grants under the program will enable the states and territories to develop new programs and campaigns, extend existing activities to attract new workers, and ensure they have the skills to deliver quality tourism experiences for our visitors. Minister for Trade and Tourism Don Farrell said Tourism Ministers around the country are united in their commitment to return Australia's visitor economy to pre-COVID expenditure levels of $166 billion by 2024, and grow it to $230 billion by 2030.
