Tourism remains a key sector in the Isle of Man economy, generating expenditure and jobs in its own right while also being tightly connected to the Island’s wider economic priorities.
Recognised for the underpinning role that it has throughout the business community, the Island’s visitor economy supports a range of employment, diversification and investment opportunities. The Tourism division of the Department of Economic Development continues to develop avenues for business support, through socially and economically sustainable development.
The Isle of Man’s tourism sector plays a key complementary role in communicating strong positive images about the Island’s quality of life and business environment. The facilities, services and environments provided by our visitor economy can support many types of regeneration or inward investment project.
