Coronavirus Scottish Tourism Recovery Taskforce

Mon 27 Jul 20

The Scottish Tourism Recovery Taskforce (STRT), led by the Cabinet Secretary for Rural Economy and Tourism and the Minister for Business, Fair Work and Skills is responsible for strategic oversight of, challenging, and advising on, recovery plans in response to the Covid-19 impact on Scottish tourism and hospitality.  

The STRT is responsible for ensuring that the tourism recovery plan is fully coordinated with wider Scottish Government and other relevant sectoral recovery plans, and with our tourism strategy Scotland Outlook 2030. It will also take into account in its activity, wider actions being taken by the UK Government, other devolved administrations and international best practice, including that of the European Union.  

The taskforce is expected to be a short life group running from June to September 2020.
