Tourism in Wales ...and BREXIT
There were 9.3 million overnight tourist trips to Wales by GB residents in 2016. Tourists and visitors spend more than £17 million a day in Wales, amounting to £6.3 billion a year. (Aug 2018, Visit Wales)
Brexit presents challenges for our tourism industry both for growth in business and employment, the Welsh Government and Industry need to be proactive if any emerging opportunities are to be seized. We are all aware that the business environment will be tough, however if Sterling weakens after March 2019, an increase in international visitors should be expected and the so called number of ‘Staycations’ may also increase... although we also recognise neither is a given.
We all need to be ready, government and industry alike. It is a time when the rules are being re-written. Let it be done in a way which realises the potential of our industry and wider visitor economy.
