Ensuring the caravan industry's voice is heard

Former political adviser to spread the word

Julian Haniman Have your say

THE caravan industry's peak body has appointed former political adviser Julian Harniman to its newly created role of government relations and policy officer.

The Caravan Industry Association of Australia said it wanted to ensure the industry's collective voice was heard where it could effectively assist businesses in the industry.

It was confident Mr Haniman's "strong communication and stakeholder relationships skills" would help strengthen its presence politically and achieve the best outcomes for the industry.

"Julian will ensure our sector's importance is recognised by government and our ability to develop and grow is supported rather than impeded," the association said in a statement.

"He will work to ensure our industry is properly consulted on all relevant issues, receives fair recognition and appropriate support and is not disadvantaged by unintended consequences or poor public policy."

Mr Haniman said he was "excited" to be working in an industry covering tourism, retail and manufacturing sectors which together were innovating and growing, enabling travellers to see Australia.

"I look forward to working towards greater advocacy, understanding and recognition of an industry that encourages family-orientated travel while also contributing significant benefits to the Australian economy," he added.

Mr Haniman was adviser to Shadow Federal Minister For Tourism and Regional Development Bob Baldwin from September 2011 to November the following year.

He then became the Liberal Party's full-time campaign manager and consultant for eight months from November 2012.
