THE board of Welcome to Yorkshire has agreed to move forward with a review on the future direction of the organisation, with further details being announced early in the New Year.

Peter Box, chair of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “We are grateful to the Yorkshire and Humber leaders for confirming their own review.

“It is important that our work does not overlap with this process but is complementary to it.

“It is our intention that the Welcome to Yorkshire review takes into account important research on the region’s tourism sector carried out over the last two years.

“We look forward to producing a final report for consideration by the Yorkshire and Humber Leaders in February.”

Welcome to Yorkshire's aim is to grow the county’s visitor economy.
