Visitor Economy Committee

Visitor Economy Committee

The Committee comprises of representatives from the island’s airline and shipping companies as well as individuals involved in the island’s hospitality and tourism sector.

We seek opinions from key stakeholders within the transport and tourism industries to understand the issues facing this vital sector of the economy. We take the concerns from our Members to Government to seek out the best way to grow the Island economy.

Our strong links with Visit Jersey and the Jersey Hospitality Association are an important part of the process; these are some of the key relationships we constantly build upon.
