One of our own as Prime Minister

The Tourism & Transport Forum congratulates Scott Morrison on being elected Leader of the Federal Liberal Party and becoming the Commonwealth of Australia’s 30th Prime Minister.

Scott Morrison has a long, rich background in the tourism sector having held senior roles at Tourism & Transport Forum, and Tourism Australia.

Tourism is growing at such a spectacular rate that in less than five years it has the potential to leapfrog manufacturing to become one of our biggest employers and completely dwarf other comparative industries like mining, agriculture and financial services.

At a time when the tourism industry continues to emerge as one of the cornerstones of Australia’s prosperity, it’s important to have a government that is focussed on the economic impact the industry has.

We look forward to Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s passion for tourism being elevated to the heart of government.
