£2.4m boost for tourism in Wales
TOURISM projects received a funding boost of £2.4m last week.
Ken Skates, the Economy Secretary, announced that the money is being offered to 26 projects across Wales that will improve the experience visitors have in Wales.
The funding has been made available through the Tourism Amenity Investment Support scheme (TAIS), aimed at public, third sector and not-for-profit organisations for investment targeting small scale infrastructure (visitor amenity) projects in the tourism sector in Wales.
The project has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.
The funding has been allocated to infrastructure projects across Wales which will see improvements to visitor amenities as well as products which help develop quality destinations.
The projects include improvements to cycle paths; upgrades to access and facilities at blue flag beaches; visitor parking; signage and public conveniences.
