The 4-Day work week in New Zealand to Boost Tourism: Jacinda Ardern
Jacinda Arden, NewZealand’s Prime Minister, suggested a four-day workweek during an informal Facebook live. This idea has been floated by her to boost NewZeland’s tourism industry.
Food, Tourism, and Hotel industries have been struck due to the coronavirus in every country. Thus, the decision to make the working week shorter could be a great move to rejuvenate the Tourism Industry in NewZealand.
During the conference, she also said that this move is taken to encourage the native people to roam around the country since the borders of all the countries are closed due to the pandemic. Many other ideas are being floated inside the government officials, and the feasibility of each thought is being checked at the moment.

She also claims that the government has also got a lot of input from the public as well about the four-day workweek. Most of them seem happy with this decision, but at the end of the day, it depends upon the settlement of Employer and Employee.
Furthermore, She requested employers to make the four-day workweek to boost the tourism industry of NewZealand.
According to Data, NewZealand’s tourism industry has evolved through the contribution of domestic travel. About 60 percent of the revenue generated comes from domestic travel. If we go by the numbers, it could be a great strategic move by the government to lift every section of the economy.
Rumors about Trans-Tasman Bubble has been spreading like fire in the country. During the live session, she clarified that the government of both Australia and NewZealand are keen to open the travel to set a benchmark. But currently, there is no set plan for the execution from both governments of Australia and NewZealand.
Currently, Ms. Ardern is flying to Rotorua, which is one of the hot spots of NewZealand.
