澳大利亚旅游部长呼吁恢复州际旅行

2020-6-3 22:49

 

堪培拉,6月3日(新华社)——澳大利亚高峰旅游机构呼吁在7月中旬之前重新开放所有国内边境。


澳大利亚旅游产业委员会(ATIC)最近敦促州和地区领导人“齐心协力”恢复州际旅行。


西澳大利亚(WA)、南澳大利亚(SA)、塔斯马尼亚(Tasmania)、昆士兰州(Queensland)和北领地(NT)的政府顶住了来自联邦政府的压力,没有解除边境限制,以促进旅游业的发展。


ATIC的执行董事Simon Westaway警告说,保持边境关闭对NT的损失最大。


他在接受澳大利亚新闻集团采访时表示:“像南澳大利亚这样的州,传统上只有略高于二分之一的游客美元是由南澳大利亚人在那里消费的,相比之下,北领地则主要依赖于国内、州际游客以及国际游客的消费。”


南非总理史蒂文•马歇尔(Steven Marshall)已表示,将从7月3日起逐步放松对边境的限制。


北达科他州州长迈克尔·冈纳(Michael Gunner)宣布,他在这个问题上的决定不会受到其他州的影响。


他说:“我们共同努力,在国家内阁共享信息,但香港的边界是由香港决定的,而不是由其他人决定的。”

 

CANBERRA, June 3 (Xinhua) -- Australia's peak tourism body has called for all domestic borders to be re-opened by mid-July.

The Australian Tourism Industry Council (ATIC) recently urged state and territory leaders to work "as one" on the resumption of interstate travel.

The governments of Western Australia (WA), South Australia (SA), Tasmania, Queensland and the Northern Territory (NT) have resisted pressure from the federal government to lift their border restrictions to boost the tourism industry.

Simon Westaway, the executive director of ATIC, warned that the NT has the most to lose from keeping its borders closed.

"States like SA traditionally experience a little over one in two visitor dollars being spent there by South Australians, in contrast the NT has been overwhelmingly reliant on domestic, interstate visitors with top-ups by international travellers," he told News Corp Australia.

Steven Marshall, the Premier of SA, has flagged a gradual easing of the state's border restrictions from July 3.

His NT counterpart Michael Gunner has declared that his decision on the issue will not be influenced by other states.

"We work together and share information at National Cabinet but the Territory's borders are for the Territory to decide, and for no one else," he said.
