The First Minister has announced a new £25 million tourism recovery programme.
The recovery proposals were developed by the Scottish Tourism Emergency Response Group (STERG) in collaboration with members of the Tourism Task Force and represent initiatives which are over and above the scope of current public agency funding.
It is the recommendation of STERG and the Tourism Task Force that these proposals will not only accelerate recovery in the short term, allowing tourism to once again contribute to communities and to the economy of Scotland, but will provide the foundation for a sustainable recovery of Scottish tourism in the medium to long term, setting us back on track towards the ambitions of Scotland Outlook 2030.
VisitScotland plays a key role in delivering the new programme with six out of 10 of the proposals led by us. We thought it would be useful to outline the phase one recovery projects.
