This is a strategy for Britain’s travel and tourism industry through to 2020. It highlights the potential for our visitor numbers to grow by 23 per cent to 40 million, the potential to add 200,000 jobs in an economy where new jobs are the number one priority and the
potential to generate £8.7 billion in additional foreign exchange revenue (in nominal terms).

Few British industries are as strong as travel and tourism, and few have such growth potential. But achieving this will not be easy. It requires an exceptional level of collaboration and partnership between the travel industry, the public sector and Government. VisitBritain can support this and facilitate this potential but it
cannot deliver growth on its own.
