Can tourism revive the UK economy?
Prime Minister David Cameron has urged people to be more "proud" of the UK and seize a "huge" opportunity to attract overseas visitors. What action should be taken to boost tourism?
Currently, the United Nations ranks the UK as the sixth-most visited destination in the world behind France, the US, Spain, China and Italy.
Measures to help the industry would include speeding up the process of getting visitors' visas for the UK for tourists from India and China. There will also be attempts to encourage UK citizens to spend more of their money at home rather than abroad.
A recent study for Visit Britain suggests that tourism's contribution to the economy could grow by more than 60% to £188bn by 2020.
Does tourism offer an economic opportunity for Britain? Which part of the UK would you recommend for overseas visitors? Do you work in the tourism industry? Would you holiday in the UK?
