Tourism Minister John Glen welcomes new look Tourism Industry Council

Tourism Minister John Glen will co- chair his first meeting with the Tourism Industry Council on 27 September.

The Tourism Industry Council acts as a key point of dialogue between government and the industry. The council meetings will be complemented by roundtables to enable the Minister to discuss specific policy issues with a broader array of tourism businesses and representatives.

The Council will be involved in identifying solutions to help the sector grow and ensuring that the tourism industry continues to make a direct contribution to the economy and increase the number of jobs created by the industry.

Tourism Minister John Glen said:

There is a huge amount of potential for growth within the tourism sector and this requires joined-up thinking between government and industry. The Tourism Industry Council is an important forum to develop this work and provide a strong voice for the industry, both nationally and internationally, as we prepare to leave the EU. I hope that by working together we can ensure the sustained success of the tourism sector so that it continues to be major economic force in the UK.
