Chris Roberts said : “This takes off the table completely the idea of having to hibernate through this period. "It means that we can move forward now". Davis said Waitomo contributed to the region and this cash injection would save jobs not just at Waitomo, but elsewhere in the community. "Many people go there specifically for that and it has positive spill over affects into that community and that region". When asked why Hobbiton had not received anything in this announcement, Davis said they had to go through the process like everyone else and meet the criteria. However, he wasn't sure if they had applied for money from Government or not. Hobbiton's marketing manager, Shayne Forrest said they haven't reviewed the criteria and application process in any detail after its release this morning. "As a result, we aren’t really in a position to make any comment at this time. "[Hobbiton] had a great opening weekend. Was fantastic to have visitors back on-site and to see the friendly faces of our team back hosting guests," Forrest said. The Government has also set up a "Tourism Futures Taskforce" to assess the future of the industry, which will be co-chaired by Webster and Rotorua Mayor Steve Chadwick. Discover Waitomo warranted the support as it was a "world-renowned iconic tourism attraction", Davis said, that brought economic, cultural and employment boons for the King Country. The Government needed to "act fast" to save the operator, and similar urgent decisions would be made announced soon. Davis has previously mentioned Kaikōura whale watching operators as possibly requiring support. "We don’t want bureaucracy to get in the way of supporting businesses that need it," he said. Tourism operators could qualify as a strategic tourism asset if they were nationally or internationally recognised, were a key attraction for New Zealand or a region, if visitors to a region would reduce if the business closed, and if there were "significant spill over benefits" for the business' region. Tourism Industry Aotearoa chief executive Chris Roberts said the Government was right to protect tourism assets, though "today’s announcements provide no direct support for the thousands of small and medium enterprises that are the majority of tourism businesses" "However, saving iconic businesses like Discover Waitomo provides significant employment and economic spin-offs for the local region,” External link

Chris Roberts said : “This takes off the table completely the idea of having to hibernate through this period. "It means that we can move forward now". Davis said Waitomo contributed to the region and this cash injection would save jobs not just at Waitomo, but elsewhere in the community. "Many people go there specifically for that and it has positive spill over affects into that community and that region". When asked why Hobbiton had not received anything in this announcement, Davis said they had to go through the process like everyone else and meet the criteria. However, he wasn't sure if they had applied for money from Government or not. Hobbiton's marketing manager, Shayne Forrest said they haven't reviewed the criteria and application process in any detail after its release this morning. "As a result, we aren’t really in a position to make any comment at this time. "[Hobbiton] had a great opening weekend. Was fantastic to have visitors back on-site and to see the friendly faces of our team back hosting guests," Forrest said. The Government has also set up a "Tourism Futures Taskforce" to assess the future of the industry, which will be co-chaired by Webster and Rotorua Mayor Steve Chadwick. Discover Waitomo warranted the support as it was a "world-renowned iconic tourism attraction", Davis said, that brought economic, cultural and employment boons for the King Country. The Government needed to "act fast" to save the operator, and similar urgent decisions would be made announced soon. Davis has previously mentioned Kaikōura whale watching operators as possibly requiring support. "We don’t want bureaucracy to get in the way of supporting businesses that need it," he said. Tourism operators could qualify as a strategic tourism asset if they were nationally or internationally recognised, were a key attraction for New Zealand or a region, if visitors to a region would reduce if the business closed, and if there were "significant spill over benefits" for the business' region. Tourism Industry Aotearoa chief executive Chris Roberts said the Government was right to protect tourism assets, though "today’s announcements provide no direct support for the thousands of small and medium enterprises that are the majority of tourism businesses" "However, saving iconic businesses like Discover Waitomo provides significant employment and economic spin-offs for the local region,” External link
