A new hospitality strategy

One of the sectors most cruelly hit by the pandemic and the measures taken to control it has been the hospitality industry. So I welcome the announcement today of a new hospitality strategy to help pubs, bars and restaurants recover and thrive in the long term as Britain builds back better from the pandemic.

  • The pandemic has hit the hospitality sector hard – but as we ease restrictions and re-open our economy, businesses will need support to welcome back customers and recruit the staff they need.
     
  • That is why the government has today launched the first-ever hospitality strategy – focused on reopening, recovery and resilience – including measures such as making it easier to offer al fresco dining, boosting career choice and opportunity in hospitality, and reducing waste and plastic consumption.
     
  • This will build help our beloved pubs, restaurants, cafes and nightclubs  thrive as we emerge from the pandemic – delivering better choice for consumers and protecting jobs and livelihoods.
