On the announcement made today by the Cabinet Secretary for Tourism Fergus Ewing MSP, that from 15 July, Scottish tourism businesses may be able to resume operations, Dr Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce said:

“This will be welcome news for so many who are reliant on hospitality and tourism for their livelihoods. The Scottish Chamber network alone represents over 1,600 businesses in the tourism sector which employ over 46,000 people, underlining how critical it is for jobs and skills that the sector thrives. The Scottish Government has listened but for some it is already too late and the challenge ahead remains clear. The sector, which is essential to maintaining the fabric of many areas of Scotland remains fragile. These companies will continue to need support to ensure they can adapt to provide a safe experience for visitors.”
