The G7 summit of world leaders, taking place between 11th-13th June, is a once in a lifetime opportunity to shine the global spotlight on Cornwall.
Glenn Caplin-Grey, chief executive of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), has been leading the preparations for how the business sector can take advantage of having the world’s attention focused on Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
“The eyes of hundreds of millions of people around the world will be on us. It gives us an opportunity to show Cornwall as we want it to be seen. The world knows about Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly being a tourist destination and we expect that to be highlighted again.”
The development of sustainable high value International tourism is a fantastic way to grow Cornwall’s exports. Overseas visitors bring their Euros, Dollars and Yuan here, spending them on our goods and services in Sterling.
