TTF CONGRATULATES NSW PREMIER PERROTTET AS INDUSTRY PREPARES FOR RECOVERY
Incoming NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet will be a strong advocate for the NSW tourism, transport and aviation industry as it prepares to recover from restrictions and lockdowns, the Tourism & Transport Forum (TTF) said today.
“On behalf of our TTF membership and the sector at large, we warmly congratulate Premier Dominic Perrottet MP on his new role as leader of the NSW Government and of NSW, Australia’s gateway state,” TTF CEO Margy Osmond said.
“TTF has a close and productive working relationship with the now Premier and his team, and he has long been a strong supporter and friend of our tourism, transport and aviation sector across NSW.
“Premier Perrottet understands the importance of our industries to the long-term future of NSW if supported through this critical reopening period out of lockdowns and restrictions and into the summer travel and holiday season.
“We look forward to working closely with Premier Perrottet and his team as we collectively rebuild our tourism industry and re-attract intrastate, interstate and, in time, high yielding international visitation back into NSW.
“This is also an important period for rebuilding transport related infrastructure in a post-pandemic world. It includes incorporating the latest in technology and new mobility solutions to attract people back onto public transport and into our struggling CBD precincts both during work hours and also as part of vibrant 24-hour economies.
“We also thank Gladys Berejiklian for her longstanding service to NSW, particularly most recently as Premier through the COVID-19 pandemic, the toughest period that much of NSW, and certainty our industries, have ever endured.
“Ms Berejiklian’s exceptional leadership, tenacity, energy and focus through the unprecedented pressures of that period, day-in and day-out, was inspirational and put the state on a strong footing for the recovery phase.
“We wish Ms Berejiklian every success and fully support her on the next phase of her outstanding career.”
