Development and tourism collaboration

South West Development Commission and the WA Indigenous Tourism Operators Council have entered into a co-working arrangement, which they hope will lead to closer ties and greater collaboration.

The arrangement means WAITOC will have a base at the the South West Development Commissions office.

The opportunity to partner came about after WAITOC required somewhere temporary to work from for approximately six months.

WAITOC chief executive officer Robert Taylor said he was pleased the organisation now had a desk at the Bunbury office.

“Working day-to- day in the Commissions office helps WAITOC keep in touch with the developments in the South West and also supports the region to get a closer understanding of Aboriginal culture,” he said.

South West Development Commission acting chief executive officer Rebecca Ball said as part of the Commissions efforts to grow the economy and support local jobs, it aimed to develop the regions tourism market.

“The Commission has a strong relationship with local tourism organisations in the region, including WAITOC which provides an important service through its work in supporting local Aboriginal businesses,” she said.

“South West Development Commission works to support Aboriginal tourism, as well as the wider tourism industry in the region, and we look forward to building on the strong relationship we already have.

“We encourage other organisations and businesses to support Aboriginal tourism and not-for- profits where possible.”
