Submissions to government



ATEC has long held industry advocacy as a core function


Through member engagement and feedback, we shape strong yet focused arguments on how governments can use policy settings to remove impediments to growth and drive demand. We focus our advocacy efforts on issues that impact or present opportunity for the inbound tourism sector and our messaging always centres on two key themes: ensuring Australia is a competitive global destination and delivering a quality experience to the international visitor.
