Tourism Support Programme Incentive to Transfer to Department of Tourism

It was recently announced by Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies that the administration of the Tourism Support Programme (TSP) would be transferred from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to the Department of Tourism (DOT) effective from 1 October 2012.

The TSP is a sub-programme of the Enterprise Investment Programme which was initiated in 2008 and expires for the submission of applications in 2014.

Claims for projects that have been approved under the existing programme by the DTI would still be administered by the DTI and sufficient budget would be made available within the DTI to honour such claims.
