I have regular contact with the First Minister about a range of issues.

Both the First Minister and I are aware of the importance of the tourism industry to the Scottish economy, particularly at this time. I shall be continuing to use every opportunity to promote to overseas audiences the attractions of today's Scotland in all its vibrant diversity and to support the efforts of the tourism agencies in that regard.
