Prior to their abolition in 2012, regional development agencies in the UK acknowledged that the tourism and leisure sectors were an increasingly important feature in their strategic plans. But in many cases, there was little evidence to support the role of tourism as a major economic driver. For nearly 20 years, researchers from the Welsh Economy Research Unit (WERU) have examined the economic contribution that tourism has made in Wales. The team have developed tools and models to answer the future-orientated ‘what-if’ questions and to consider the indirect effects of tourism.
