What Kiwis think

Research has shown almost all New Zealanders agree that international tourism is good for the country. 

However, 21 per cent think New Zealand attracts too many visitors and most New Zealanders still underestimate the size of the tourism industry.

Tourism New Zealand and Tourism Industry Aotearoa first ran their ‘Mood of the Nation’ survey in November 2015 and have been using it as a ‘sense check’ on how Kiwis are feeling, ever since. The information is being used to help inform the Government and industry on where action is needed.
