The Welsh and the UK governments should work more closely together to make Wales more competitive, according to Wales Office Minister, Baroness Jenny Randerson.

Baroness Randerson said :

"Wales has such a wealth of wonderful attractions, activities and events for visitors, and host of world-class facilities right on our doorsteps. We have so much to gain if Government and the tourism industry work together."

The tourism sector is worth £6 billion to the Welsh economy and employs more than 8% of the workforce. However, between 2002 and 2012 the Wales share of international visitors fell from 4% to 3%.
