Stevenson Welcomes Support for Aberdeenshire Tourism

Stewart Stevenson, MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, this week asked the Minister for Business, Energy and Tourism, Fergus Ewing, what the Scottish Government were doing to support tourism in Aberdeenshire.

The Minister responded:

“We work closely with a range of public bodies—including Visit Scotland, Scottish Enterprise, Scottish Natural Heritage, Skills Development Scotland and Historic Environment Scotland—and with industry to increase tourism throughout the country, including in Aberdeenshire.”

Mr Stevenson went on to welcome the support that had been given to Aberdeenshire recently, he said:

“I thank the minister for the substantial support that is being given to tourism delivery in Aberdeenshire. I invite him to join me in welcoming the formation of the Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire tourism company, which is consolidating what has been a fragmented approach to tourism in Aberdeenshire. With more than £1 million of initial funding, it looks set to deliver much more for Aberdeenshire in that important economic sector.”

Mr Ewing responded highlighting his support for the new tourism company, he said:

“The establishment of the Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire tourism company represents an opportunity for even more success. I am delighted that there has been support from all parties, including Sir Ian Wood’s Opportunity North East—ONE—initiative, to build on the success of tourism in Mr Stevenson’s part of the world”
