Tourism strategy consultation

Submissions closed: 04 February 2019, 5pm

Consultation has begun on the Aotearoa New Zealand Government Tourism Strategy. The draft Tourism Strategy proposes a more deliberate and active role for government in tourism, to make sure that growth is productive, sustainable and inclusive.


It sets out the government’s aim for tourism, to enrich New Zealand through sustainable tourism growth, and how it’ll work across government as well as with the tourism sector, iwi, local government, communities and other stakeholders to achieve this.

You can read more about the draft Tourism Strategy at the document links at the top of this page.

We’re interested in hearing what you think about the draft Tourism Strategy. You can provide feedback by 5pm Monday 4 February 2019.

Next steps

We will review the feedback and look to finalise the strategy in late March 2019.
