The Hon Rebecca White MP is Tasmania's Shadow Spokesperson for Tourism, and Leader of the Labor Party in the Tasmanian Parliament.
Rebecca's sprawling electorate of Lyons is also one of the most tourism-dependent electorates in the country, stretching across central Tasmania and onto the East Coast and Tasman Peninsula.
Rebecca sits down with TICT CEO Luke Martin, to share her thoughts on the COVID-19 emergency. The outlook ahead for Tasmania and its visitor economy, and her aspirations for the recovery.
Rebecca also speaks candidly about her own family's experience as operators of hospitality and tourism businesses, in having to confront many of the difficult challenges all business operators in our sectors have had to navigate over recent weeks.
