TOURISM INDUSTRY WELCOMES REOPENING OF SA-NSW BORDER
TTF Australia CEO Margy Osmond today welcomed news that the South Australian and NSW border will re- open from midnight tomorrow night, Wednesday 23 September, as announced today by the South Australian Government, subject to no community transmission being recorded up until midnight tonight.
“It is fantastic to see ongoing announcements around safe border reopenings including this latest reopening between South Australia and NSW which will boost traveller confidence and the economies of both States,” Margy Osmond said.
“I congratulate the Premier of South Australia Steven Marshall and NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian and both State Governments on this significant and hugely positive development.
“Border reopenings are music to the ears of tourism, accommodation, aviation and transport businesses right around the country and we need this momentum to continue so Australians can plan friends and family visits in the lead-up to Christmas.
“Recent Newgate Research shows that 63% of Australians are keen to see all borders completely open by Christmas. As State borders continue to come down, TTF urges National Cabinet to further progress a single national COVID-19 hotspot definition so we can manage the risk rather than the emergency and get interstate tourism up and running where possible once more.”
