ATIC: Western Australia's Ongoing Border Restrictions Must End

 Daniel Gschwind: "Restrictions must end"
The Australian Tourism Industry Council (ATIC) is concerned that ongoing border restrictions will lead to continued disruptions for the tourism and aviation industries. Specifically, Western Australian tourism operators have now been dealt another heavy blow. The latest National Tourism Business Activity and COVID-19 Survey for the October-December quarter have revealed that tourism operators are on average experiencing a 52% downturn in business activity, compared to the same quarter in 2019, pre-COVID.

Deputy Chair of ATIC, Daniel Gschwind, stated that for tourism to successfully move to COVID-normal and allow Australia to bounce back, we must come back together as one country.
