Guidance published this week by the Welsh Government, to inform the reopening of tourism and hospitality businesses, will provide welcome clarity and support for businesses, says UKHospitality.
The Welsh Government on Monday published its guidance for a phased reopening of the Welsh visitor economy which would see outdoor attractions opening on 6 July, followed by accommodation businesses on 13 July, with the remainder of the sector opening at a date to be confirmed.
The Welsh Government publication links to UKHospitality Cymru’s own reopening guidelines for hospitality in Wales, drawn up following extensive discussions with its members and sector stakeholders.
UKHospitality Executive Director for Wales David Chapman said: “It is positive to see that our close working with Welsh Government throughout the pandemic period has produced progress towards the reopening of hospitality in Wales.
“Tourism and hospitality are huge employers and two substantial pillars of the Welsh economy, so getting these sectors back up and running as soon as possible will be key to ensuring that businesses are open and jobs secure.
“The guidance will give businesses the best possible help to make sure they get themselves in a position to reopen and trade safely. “
