COVID-19 stimulus package to save jobs and industries

Published:

Caravan Industry Association of Australia welcomes the $17.6 billion COVID-19 support package released by the Federal Government this morning.  The stimulus package is crucial to supporting Australians, the business community and the economy in this time of crisis.

There is no doubt that the start of 2020 has brought immense challenges to the tourism industry which is impacting cash flows, staffing and operations in businesses across the country.

The government's stimulus package through business tax write offs, apprenticeship support, tourism funding and wage subsidies, will help inject cash into local economies, support businesses to maintain staffing levels and to provide business confidence in these uncertain times.

"Caravan Industry Association of Australia values the timely and measured response of the Government, which will help secure jobs across our manufacturing and accommodation sectors whilst also providing a safeguard for Australia's economy" said Stuart Lamont, CEO.

"And once the current crisis eases, Australia's caravan and camping industry will be ready to play its role in supporting economic recovery through welcoming Australians and our international visitors back into regional destinations to experience."
