New report looks at UK tourism after Brexit

By Katie Cavell, Cornwall Brussels Representative


The UK Tourism Alliance, which represents the Tourism Industry across the UK, has published a report looking at the policy agenda for the UK Tourism Industry post-Brexit.

The report, titled ‘Tourism After Bexit 2017′, considers the various policy areas that have an impact on the tourism sector, including deregulation and tourism-related taxation, skills and employment, transport, the CAP, and community regeneration, and comes up with a list of measures to lobby government.

Recommendations include:

  • a new British version of the CAP that recognises the link between farming, the environment, and tourism;
  • developing a plan to fill staff shortages in the industry generated by Brexit;
    constructing a tax regime for the sector that is sustainable and encourages growth; reducing the regulatory burden on the sector;
  • The report sets out the key challenges and opportunities of Brexit to the Tourism Industry and makes policy recommendations that could be incorporated into a revamped UK policy agenda post-Brexit.
