Anglesey reveals value of tourism in 2013
27 May 2014

New figures have underlined the economic value of the tourism industry to Anglesey.

It has been revealed that an extra influx of visitors saw the value of the industry hit £256 million in 2013, which is a four per cent rise on the figure seen 12 months earlier.

This is equivalent to an additional £10.8 million, which is very welcome news to the local economy.

According to local tourism authority, the island saw more than 1.5 million visitors in 2013, while there was also an increase in the number of people employed in the industry.

Councillor Aled Morris Jones, cabinet member for tourism, said: "These figures once again emphasise tourism's importance to the island and should be welcomed both in terms of the tourism industry and local economy.”

He added: "We're committed to building on this success and will continue to work closely with all sectors of the industry to ensure an even better summer this year."ADNFCR-408-ID-801723292-ADNFCR
