Tourism Growth Partnership Placed On Hold

The Tourism Growth Partnership (TGP) has been placed on hold while Tourism Minister Paula Bennett assesses funding priorities for the wider tourism portfolio.

After a period of strong growth in the sector, it is important to ensure government support is appropriately directed to priority areas, such as infrastructure.

Next steps

We will update the sector as soon as we have further information.

Tourism Growth Partnership funding that has been approved will continue as scheduled.

About the Tourism Growth Partnership

The Tourism Growth Partnership was initiated in 2013, when investment was needed to lift productivity and boost innovation in the sector. Since that time, the Government has partnered in 33 unique tourism ventures to attract high-value visitors, investing a total of $23.54 million, which has been matched by $67.35 million in private sector contribution.
