Tourism Minister, Edmund Bartlett, says the sector continues to see an increase in visitor arrivals since the reopening of the economy.

Speaking during a sitting in the House of Representatives recently, the Minister says the economy has collected billions of dollars in revenue over the last year.

In light of this, Bartlett says the government’s aim is to change the labour market in tourism and increase the membership of individuals on the pension programme.
