Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 5 Hansard (5 May) . .
economy, as I mentioned in question time, is around $5 million annually. But along with this economic contribution is an important addition to our economy of an invaluable array of skills and contacts for the ACT's high tech engineering sector.
Attracting direct international flights to Canberra Airport will be another important step forward for this city, for the airport and for the regional economy. It will bring hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars in tourism benefits, benefits to the professional services sector and to our export sectors.
I take this opportunity this afternoon to acknowledge Canberra Airport's significant investment in the future of Canberra, particularly its development of a world-class aviation facility that is fully ready for international flights. I also acknowledge the airport's recent achievements, including the 2013 Australian airport of the year award, the recently announced QantasLink heavy maintenance base and its win at the recent Australian tourism awards, on behalf of our city, in specialised tourism services. I commend this revised MOU to the Assembly.
