WA’s economy is rapidly deteriorating. Economists and business leaders are warning that we must reduce our dependence on the resources and housing sectors. They say we must become more innovative and focus on exporting a more diverse range of goods and services and promote our natural assets. Tourism has been identified as one of the biggest areas of potential export growth for Australia and Western Australia, it is one of the fastest growing industries in the world.
To expand our tourism industry, we must get our product right. The type of tourism that we develop and promote must be based on reliable market research. Extensive market research shows that the majority of tourists want nature and natural environments over all other types of attractions.
We must save this precious and valuable public asset for our economy and for future generations to enjoy.
