More funding to support regional communities is being called for by the Vic Lib-Nats
Leader of the Victorian Nationals and Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh yesterday joined the member for Ovens Valley Tim McCurdy and Wangaratta's Mayor Dean Rees to announce a $200 million plan.
The Liberal Nationals are calling for a dedicated Regional Tourism Fund to be immediately established by the Andrews Labor Government to support our country communities and bring visitors back to regional Victoria.
The Regional Tourism Fund will assist communities and small businesses that have been hit hard by drought, bushfires and now the coronavirus pandemic
Mr Walsh said they are calling on the Victorian Government to help restore regional communities and let businesses recover.
"Tens-of-thousands of regional Victorians who rely on their jobs in the tourism sector to pay the bills and put food on the table are counting on the Andrews Government to get them back to work and back in business," he said.
