Lord Mayor Of Brisbane Leads Tourism Delegation To NZ
The Minister of Tourism Mark Burton will host the Lord Mayor of Brisbane Jim Soorley and his delegation during a visit to Wellington.
"Jim Soorley is aghast at the kiwi bashing that has occurred in Australia over the Ansett issue and has at his own volition decided to bring a high-powered delegation to Wellington to show support for New Zealand," Mark Burton said.
The Lord Mayor's delegation will hold a series of meetings on Monday with Government ministers, the Tourism Industry Association, Tourism New Zealand, Air New Zealand, and attend a dinner at Parliament hosted by the Prime Minister Helen Clark and Tourism Minister Mark Burton.
