Member for Finniss Michael Pengilly invited Mr Whetstone on the trip, which also included a tour of Kangaroo Island on Tuesday, to talk investment and trade opportunities in the Finnisselectorate.

The pair visited Normanville Meatworks, Fleurieu Milk Company, and Hall Print to talk to owners about export.

They also met with the Mayor and chief executive of Yankalilla council, and attended the PIRSA-run meeting on Wednesday night regarding recreational fishing management.

Mr Whetstone said he visited regional towns around the state over the course of the year, as trade and investment was part of his portfolio and he was keen to explore new options.

“(This trip) was to have a look and talk to businesses either exporting or want to be exporters, and look at opportunities of bolstering export in South Australia,” he said.

“We had a really good couple of days, we met with some good businesses, some already exporting.”

He said tourism was an important investment and trade element in Victor Harbor and surrounds, and the whole Finniss electorate.

“What I learned particularly at Victor is it’s not only a conduit, opening the door to people visiting the region –they’re good at passing people onto the next destination,” he said.

He said people told him their concerns about the tourism industry’s future, but also concerns ofcreating jobs and retaining youth.

He believed a number of issues contributed to this, but a solution involved “promoting less government interference” when businesses were starting up.

“They (youth) are our future, and if we can underpin existing businesses we can retain our youths,” he said.

Mr Pengilly said overall, it was a positive trip and they looked to the future for ways to further trade and investment.

“Everywhere we went, people were pleased to see us,” Mr Pengilly said.
