Hide / Show Abstract

International tourism expenditure makes a major contribution to the New Zealand economy, accounting for 8.8% of GDP in 2010. In the year ended March 2011 it amounted to NZD 9.7 billion or 16.8% of total export earnings. International expenditure in New Zealand is forecast to increase by 2.7% a year to 2016, with international visitor arrivals rising by 2.8% a year. International arrivals grew by an average of 2.9% a year between September 2001 and September 2011. While the sector experienced strong growth in arrivals from 2000 to 2005, growth in arrivals over the past six years has been slower and in some years declined, due partly to the global financial crises and, more recently, as a consequence of the Christchurch earthquake.
