Tourism must get recognition

THE main message of the UKinbound Convention 2010 was that inbound tourism must get the recognition it deserves.
Delegates at the event, held at York Racecourse, listened to a keynote speech from Digby Lord Jones of Birmingham, who said it was 'ridiculous' that ministers are expected to cover tourism as well as other briefs in their portfolios.
He also urged any future government to ensure that tourism has representation at Cabinet level due to its significant role in creating jobs and wealth for the UK economy.
