Minister Moss to fight for better tourism infrastructure
Minister for Corporate and Information Services and Tourism, Lauren Moss is in Canberra today to hold a range of meetings with Federal Government Ministers and Senators.
The Minister is meeting with the Federal Minister for Trade, Tourism and Invester Steve Ciobo to again press for Federal Government investment to upgrade tourism infrastructure in Kakadu.
"While the natural wonders in the park are as stunning as ever, the tourist infrastructure is in need of upgrade - this is about making the park more accessible to more people for longer which will create local jobs,” she said.
“Enhancing tourist facilities in Kakadu will provide a significant economic boost to Top End tourism operators who are a key cornerstone of our economy."
Minister Moss spoke with Katie Woolf on 360 this morning and said that there are a lot of infrastructure needs in Kakadu.
"We need to make sure we continue to invest in things like sealing roads, working with traditional owners about what new experiences that can be offered and making sure the experiences are fresh and that we are respecting the beautiful and incredible environment there."
Minister Moss will also use the visit to put the case for more Federal Government investment in telecommunications in remote and regional Territory communities.
