LOCAL Assembly Member Nick Ramsay is urging constituents, particularly those involved in the tourist industry, to take part in an online survey on tourism in Wales and the key challenges facing Welsh tourism.
Launched by the Welsh Conservatives and designed with the help of front-line tourism participants, the survey seeks insights into a range of issues including how to attract the best and brightest into tourism; satisfaction with Visit Wales; who is best placed to make strategic decisions; what is ‘Brand Wales’ and should the Welsh Government be responsible for driving tourism or should an arms-length body be established.
Speaking on Wednesday, Mr Ramsay said:
“Tourism is one of the top three employers in Wales, with the tourism industry supporting around 200,000 jobs. Monmouthshire is blessed with lots of tourist hotspots and a thriving tourist industry is vital to the local economy.
“Welsh Conservatives have long called for collaborative working to boost its success and for a long term strategy to be developed to make Wales a first choice destination.
“This is a great chance to have your say on Welsh tourism and express your views on how you think ‘Brand Wales’ could be improved.”
