Capital legislation to boost Perth tourism
The Western Australian Government is to introduce legislation recognising Perth as the State’s capital city
Western Australian Premier Colin Barnett announced yesterday (16th December) that the City of Perth Act would be introduced to Parliament next year following a period of consultation.
The move has been welcomed by the Tourism Council Western Australia (TCWA) as being necessary to ensure the Perth’s development as a premier tourist destination.
TCWA Chief Executive Evan Hall explained “it is essential for Perth to have capital city legislation.
“Perth is not just another suburb – it is a major tourism destination in the State and an economic asset.
“The City of Perth Act will ensure the city can be further developed as Western Australia’s premier tourist destination.”
Earlier this year, TCWA launched Destination Perth, a strategy to double Perth tourism by 2020, resulting in $7 billion in tourism spending and 47,000 jobs for Western Australians.
Hall stated “Perth is currently the fifth most popular tourist destination in Australia for international visitors, closely behind the Gold Coast.
“As a result, Perth tourism currently employs 36,000 people.
“The city has the potential to overtake the Gold Coast in the next few years, and legislation like this is central to achieving that goal.
“Tourism Council WA looks forward to being involved in the City of Perth Act consultative process.”
