Consultation launched on draft Tourism Strategy

The Department for the Economy has launched a public consultation on a draft Tourism Strategy for Northern Ireland which outlines a 10 year plan to increase the value of tourism.

This draft strategy sets out a vision that seeks to establish Northern Ireland as a year-round world class destination which is renowned for its authentic experiences, landscape, heritage and culture and which benefits communities, the economy and the environment, with sustainability at its core.

During the development of the draft strategy, the Department engaged with stakeholders across government, its delivery partners Tourism NI and Tourism Ireland as well as other industry stakeholders.

The Department now wants all interested parties to consider the draft proposals for growth in the tourism sector. This is an opportunity to help shape the final strategy and next steps. Tourism NI will also be consulting with the tourism industry via a parallel process of industry engagement.

The public consultation closes Friday 12 January 2024 at 5.00pm.
