Stressing Tourism's importance in Wales
In a normal year there are normally c9.3 million overnight tourist trips to Wales by GB residents and tourists spend more than £17 million a day in Wales, amounting to c£6.3 billion a year. (Aug 2018, Visit Wales)
Recovery from the pandemic, Brexit and UK & Wales Government fiscal and statutory management present challenges for our tourism industry, both in terms of recovery and growth. The Welsh Government and Industry need to be proactive if any emerging opportunities are to be seized following the Pandemic. We are all aware that the business environment will be tough - but it is going to be even more challenging as are competitor markets re-open as we move into 2022.
We all need to be ready, government and industry alike. It is a time when the rules are being re-written. It needs to be undertaken in a way which realises the potential of our industry and wider visitor economy. If you are a business and are concerned about Tourism Tax, the loss of staff or Non Domestic Business Rates the attached is our manifesto.
