In order to strengthen the UK’s tourism, the Prime Minister announced a five-point tourism plan in 2015 that would not only attract international visitors, but also help to create more jobs in the country. The plan consisted of five major aspects: Skills and jobs, transport, a better coordinated sector, common sense regulation, and an improved welcome. Moreover, to promote rail tourism in the UK, the Prime Minister declared a £0.73 million (US$1.1 million) ‘Rail for Tourism innovation’ competition which was run by RSSB’s Future Railways Programme.
