Figures show 2017 has been another successful year for the tourism industry in Wales.
The Tourism Industry Barometer shows that 42% of businesses surveyed have had more visitors than last year, while 39% reported a similar level. The survey also showed that businesses report more UK visitors – 39% of operators have noticed more British people enjoying their holidays and short breaks in Wales. Following a strong year, expectations are running high for 2018.
Economy Secretary, Ken Skates recently announced that £2.4 million is being offered to 26 projects across Wales which will improve the experience visitors have in Wales.
The funding has been made available through the Tourism Amenity Investment Support scheme (TAIS), aimed at public, third sector and not for profit organisations for investment targeting small scale infrastructure (visitor amenity) projects in the tourism sector in Wales.
