Jeremy Hunt: Olympics must drive tourism industry

The Olympics have been for Britain what Usain Bolt is for athletics – something that grabs the attention of the whole world and refuses to let it go.

From the wonder of Danny Boyle’s opening ceremony to the most incredible sporting achievements, the Games have been a fantastic showcase for our country.

We must use this extraordinary year to turbo-charge our tourism industry, to create jobs and prosperity on the back of a globally-enhanced reputation.

– Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport
