The tourism sector is worth £6 billion to the Welsh economy, supporting up to 23,000 businesses and employing more than 8 per cent of the workforce. Speaking at the Wales Tourism Alliance Conference in Llandudno, Wales Office Minister Baroness Jenny Randerson, said, the Welsh and UK governments need to work more closely together to develop the competitiveness of the Welsh tourism industry.
Baroness Randerson said, “The tourism sector makes a vital contribution to the social and economic wellbeing of Wales, and it is crucial that we do all we can to attract visitors from home and overseas to experience our rich culture and deep history.”
“Next year, the eyes of the world will fall on Wales once again, as the Celtic Manor Resort prepares to host world leaders at the 2014 NATO Summit and Swansea pays tribute to its most famous son through a range of commemorations of the Dylan Thomas centenary.
These events will provide huge opportunities to promote Wales to the world. We must ensure all those who visit leave with a clear message about everything Wales, its people and its impressive landscape have to offer to the global community,” he added.
