MORE than 41,000 virtual tourists have visited the WA Tourism Commission’s new website from countries in-cluding Germany, Switzer-land and the US since its debut two months ago.

WATC CEO Shane Crockett said the commission set out to provide a one-stop-shop of customised information for people who were interested in learning about WA.

“It would appear we have gone beyond many people’s expectations,” Mr Crockett said. “It is important to remember this is phase one.

“By June 2000 we will have the electronic commerce platform in place and that will enable a greater number of business transactions to be performed.”

One of the world’s most popular search engines, Netscape, has awarded it the ‘cool site’ label and listed it as a preferred choice for anyone searching for information on WA and tourism.

The award was given because the site provided useful information and stood out when compared to sites in the same category.

Netscape Open Directory project Australian editor Dean Draper said the Netscape awards were not given out very often.

“This site is a great ambassador on the world wide web for the state,” Mr Draper said.
