Written answers (Question to Tourism)

In line with a recommendation in the Tourism Recovery Plan drawn up by the Tourism Recovery Taskforce, I appointed a Recovery Oversight Group in December 2020. The purpose of the Group is to oversee the implementation of the Recovery Plan produced by the Tourism Recovery Taskforce and monitor the sector’s recovery from the COVID crisis.

Earlier this week the Recovery Oversight Group presented its first report to me, setting out progress to date and areas it has identified as requiring attention. It also produced a report setting out progress to date with the implementation of recommendations in the Recovery Plan. These reports can be accessed on www.gov.ie/tourismrecoverytaskforce .
