The Tourism & Transport Forum (TTF) has welcomed two senior ministers to the events portfolio and infrastructure and transport roles. The 25% increase in funding for Destination NSW promised by the Premier will mean that NSW is better placed to market the state in major markets like Asia and expand NSW's events program, which is an important driver for domestic and international visitors. The TTF have long argued the importance of improving public transport and road networks in order to boost jobs and growth across Sydney. The TTF will work with both ministers on tourism and transport strategies. The Premier has outlined an ambitious agenda for tourism and transport and TTF will be advocating for its early implementation so that the economic and employment benefits that tourism and transport can deliver to NSW citizens are maximised.
