In January 2017, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy published an Industrial Strategy green paper. At the February Tourism Industry Council, an agreement was reached that the tourism sector would push for a tourism sector deal. The bid is being facilitated by VisitBritain who is helping the industry-led working groups develop proposals for the final submission.
