Exclusive Tourism Industry Interview – Vaughan Gething

In this special tourism industry interview, Business News Wales' editor, Mark Powney hosts a frank discussion with Minister for the Economy, Vaughan Gething.

Topics discussed include:

  • What is sustainable tourism?
  • Is there an opportunity for Wales to position itself as a global leader in terms of being seen as an eco-destination?
  • Convincing tourism and hospitality businesses to move to a more sustainable way of working is a priority for Welsh Government, yet 80% of self-catering businesses in Wales have yet to fully embrace sustainability. Do we need to rethink education and marketing to focus on the business case for creating a sustainable strategy, rather than the environmental ethical reason for doing so?
  • Over 25% of Wales’ economy is driven by the visitor economy yet unlike other UK nations we don’t have a tourism minister, specifically devoted to the industry. Is this something Welsh Government are looking at?
  • The Tourism Levy is causing a lot of concern in the sector, what’s the latest?
  • Will there be any new funding packages to help tourism businesses to become more sustainable?
  • Are there any plans in place to further develop sustainable transport?
