Tourism is a very important element of the Cornish economy and it is a very competitive market. Part of the challenge for the Cornish tourism industry is to extend the season from the traditional summer months and attract visitors all year round.

Cornwall's Tourism Strategy was developed by the Tourism Task Force based upon four key objectives. These were: new opportunities for public and private sector tourism joint working, marketing, data and quality.

The projects in the Tourism investment cluster specifically invested in the development of the tourism industry in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
