Jämtland Härjedalen Tourism, in collaboration with ETOUR, has been granted project funding from Region Jämtland Härjedalen for the project "Besöksnäringens roll för regional utveckling". 

Within the framework of the project, interviews will be conducted with companies, destinations, industry organisations and other stakeholders in the region. The results will be summarised in two reports; 

  • Compilation and analysis of publications describing the visitor industry in the region
  • Compilation and analysis of interviews conducted with the tourism industry's stakeholders in the region

The documentation will serve as input when revising the regional development strategy and the regional visitor industry strategy.
