STB Chief Stands Down

Lord Gordon, chairman of the Scottish Tourist Board, has stood down, following a troubled year for the Scttish tourism sector. The number of foreign visitors to Scotland fell by 11% in 1999. The First Minister of Scotland, Henry McLeish, commissioned PriceWaterhouseCoopers to undertake an independent review of the STB. The Report recommended a radical shakeup and a change of name to “visitscotland”.
