“We at the Ministry of Tourism look forward with excitement to working under the new leadership of Minister Cooper, who will bring to our Ministry the wealth of knowledge and experience he has garnered from his lifetime career as a successful leader in the private sector.

Saudi Tourism Chief Advisor Gloria Guevara Manzo Leaves Role

Josh Corder , Skift

June 26th, 2024 at 9:59 AM EDT

Manzo spent three years in Saudi Arabia, right as the conservative kingdom began to reinvent its image.

Josh Corder

Gloria Guevara Manzo, Saudi Arabia’s chief special advisor to the tourism minister, has announced she’s stepping down.

Manzo has worked in Saudi’s Ministry of Tourism since May 2021, reporting directly to minister Ahmed Al Khateeb as the Gulf capital undergoes a tourism transformation project. The kingdom is spending hundreds of billions on its fledging tourism sector, with the goal of 150 million visitors by the end of the decade.

“I am convinced of the potential of Saudi Arabia to become a top-five destination,” Manzo said Wednesday in a LinkedIn post announcing that her term had ended.

A lot has changed in Saudi since 2021 when Manzo joined:

  • International visitors have increased from 3.5 million to 27 million last year.
  • Saudi Arabia has been pushing for new source markets, such as China and India, which are now in the top five.
  • The country has committed to open 320,000 new hotel rooms before the end of the decade.
  • A new national carrier, Riyadh Air, has been formed, with flights set to start next year.
  • ‘Giga-projects’ for tourism such as The Red Sea and Diriyah Gate are now operational.

Manzo was the overseer of the Sustainable Tourism Global Center, a Saudi-government-led coalition calling on global tourism to move towards net zero.

Prior to her role with Saudi, Manzo spent four years as CEO and president of the World Travel and Tourism Council – the first woman to hold the position.

She also served as Mexico’s secretary of tourism from 2010 to 2012 and was a special advisor on government affairs at Harvard University’s Center for Health and the Global Environment at the School of Public Health.

Her successor in the ministry of tourism has not been named.

Edmonton MP Boissonault named as federal minister of tourism

Edmonton Member of Parliament Randy Boissonault has been named as the new federal minister of tourism. 

Boissonault was sworn-in to the role on Tuesday morning. He is also now the associate minister of finance. 

He is one of 39 members of the new cabinet, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, that has just seven ministers retaining the portfolio they previously held.

Boissonault was elected in Edmonton Centre in 2015, defeated in 2019 and re-elected last month.

He was one of only two Liberals elected last month in Alberta.

The other, Calgary Skyview MP George Chahal, was left out of the new cabinet. Elections Canada is investigating him after a doorbell camera video showed him removing a rival candidate’s flyer.

Occasional closure part of Indigenous Protected Area plan for troubled Never Never River's Promised Lands

Never Never River

There have been concerns about pollution in the Never Never River at a popular swimming spot known as the Promised Lands, near the town of Bellingen.

The spot has now been declared part of an 81,000-hectare Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) in the Bellingen Valley. 

What's next?

Yurruungga Aboriginal Corporation hopes the declaration will allow traditional owners to lead the way in curbing problems caused by unchecked tourism in the area.

It looks and sounds like something out of a fairytale. 

But the pristine appearance of the Never Never River, which runs through an area known as the Promised Lands on the NSW mid-north coast, is deceiving. 

"It's somewhere where the world goes, 'Oh, look how beautiful it is' and we stand here going, 'This was trashed'," said Dean Kelly, chief executive of the Yurruungga Aboriginal Corporation.

The place locals call the Promised Lands lies within Tuckers Nob State Forest, close to the town of Bellingen.

It was once regarded as something of a secret spot, but coverage on social media has seen it become an increasingly popular swimming site.

But as the site is not recognised as a tourist area by Forestry Corporation NSW, which manages the Crown Land, there are no public toilets or rubbish bins, and minimal parking.

Mr Kelly and Brentyn Lugnan are Gumbaynggir men and traditional owners of the land.

They said the hotspot, which was geotagged online, was paying a price for its popularity.

NeverNever Busy

In January 2023, water quality at the river showed concerning levels of faecal matter, with human and dog excrement the suspected source.

"There's a lot of people with heads in the sand on this", Mr Kelly said. 

Mr Lugnan said he was worried by other, less deliberate forms of contamination.

"Because it's such a pristine and shallow waterway, with the amount of people we get through here, things like the fly spray, sunscreens, fake tans — it all settles on the top of the water," he said.

Never Never Chemicals

"It creates a flow-on effect throughout the valley."

Joining the IPA Program

But now Mr Kelly and Mr Lugnan have a say in how the land is protected.

The river has become part of a new 81,000-hectare Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) in the Bellingen Valley.

It is one of 12 new IPA sites announced this year as part of an ongoing program, which now covers 87 million hectares of land.

Under the program, the federal government assigns First Nations groups with responsibility to manage their particular site.

'Closed to rest'

For the Yurruungga Aboriginal Corporation, which has received $1.19 million to run the Bellingen Valley IPA, it offers a chance to suggest solutions to curb the effects of excessive tourism in the area.

These include controlling visitor numbers and declaring the area off-limits during certain times of the year. 

"Rather than it being a free-for-all, driving up and down from sacred places, we need to give it a rest sometimes during the year," Mr Lugnan said.

Other proposals include raised walkways, introducing rangers to offer guided tours, and building an office near the entrance of the site to sell organic sunscreen. 

"We're not always going to get the answers we like, but we're going to go for everything we can," Mr Lugnan said. 

"It's not just 'stay away' — we need to actually protect some of these places because they're of very high cultural significance to our mob. 

"If we can stop people from wandering up there, that would mean a lot to us culturally."

Brentyn Lugnan

Voluntary compliance

However, getting these ideas over the line is not guaranteed.

Under the terms of an IPA, compliance is only voluntary and involves a mandatory consultation period with landholders of the particular area, which can typically last between three to five years. 

For Mr Kelly that means negotiating and consulting with multiple landholders of the Never Never River, including Forestry Corporation NSW and the Bellingen Shire Council.

"We've built a pretty good relationship and we're in a place where we can make really good change," he said. 

Both Bellingen Shire Council and the Forestry Corporation of NSW told the ABC they endorsed Yurruungga Aboriginal Corporations' application for funding under the IPA program.

The council recently launched a "Go Before You Go" campaign, encouraging visitors to use a toilet before visiting the remote swimming hole. 

Both the council and the Forestry Corporation of NSW said they looked forward to discussing opportunities and initiatives to better protect the land.
