Govt welcomes Tourism Australia audit
The Federal Government has welcomed the National Audit Office's report into problems with Tourism Australia.The Audit Office found that Tourism Australia does not systematically evaluate the effectiveness of its projects and is risking its reputation because of board members having conflicts of interest.
Federal Tourism Minister Martin Ferguson says in March this year the Government demanded that Tourism Australia maintain the highest standards of corporate governance.
He says Tourism Australia has accepted the Audit Office's three recommendations aimed at avoiding conflicts of interest and better managing its projects.
