Member of the caucus form Nova Scotia and New Brunswick will join MP Karen Ludwig and industry stakeholder to discuss what is needed to develop a cohesive Bay of Fundy economic development and tourism strategy.
“This is an opportunity to discuss how we sustainable grow the offerings in the region based around the natural and cultural assets,” said Karen Ludwig, MP for New Brunswick Southwest. “This encompasses marketing, but with the pace this industry is growing at in the region, we also need to focus on infrastructure, efficient borders and balancing tourism development with healthy communities.”
The group, including MP’s, ACOA representatives, State of Maine Tourism, industry associations and local municipalities, will meet in St. Andrews and Campobello at Roosevelt Campobello International Park.
“The time is now to get this right,” added Ludwig. “Creating an integrated world-class Fundy Coast experience will create jobs and grow the economy in the Atlantic region.”
The Tourism industry in New Brunswick employs more than 42,000 people in New Brunswick and contributes more than $520 million annually to the provincial GDP.
