New Zealand Māori Tourism says the road ahead will be long, but support for the sector in Budget 2020 will go a long way to help operators to keep their doors open.

The Budget includes a $400 million Tourism Recovery Fund as well as $10 million to reposition the Māori tourism sector.

Chief executive Pania Tyson-Nathan says Māori tourism employs about 14,000 people and includes some of the country’s most globally renowned attractions.

While tourism has been particularly hard hit by the closure of international borders and lockdown measures to control the spread of Covid-19, domestic tourism contributes 60 per cent of the sector’s revenue.

Businesses like Rotorua’s Waiotapu Thermal Wonderland were able to reopen their doors yesterday for local visitors.
