Prior to onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Austrade had also consulted widely on the development of the draft strategy – Tourism 2030: A strategy for Australia’s visitor economy to 2030. That work, including the report of the Beyond 2020 Steering Committee, provided an important foundation for development of THRIVE 2030. Thank you also to all those who contributed to this earlier body of work. We look forward to implementing this Strategy with the continued collaboration and contribution by all visitor economy participants.
