New Zealand is one step closer to reaching its target of 3 million annual arrivals, thanks to a record-breaking June.
Tourism New Zealand chief executive Kevin Bowler said in a statement: “This month’s annual arrivals, at 2.99 million show we are just short of reaching an annual arrivals figure of three million visitors, which is good news for all New Zealanders. It means more jobs and economic value, not just in the peak summer period but with benefits felt throughout the year.”News | Tagged Air New Zealand, New Zealand, Pasifika, Te Papa, Tourism | Leave a reply
