Tourism Associations In Wales

Why so many tourism associations? Partly it’s geographic, people form local communities believe that they have uniquely shared needs. But I think it’s such a mess because of a desire of a few to castle build, of may to engage in protectionism and of most to make some money or pay for a salary of an admin or officer of some kind. And because of these less than altruistic foundations the numerous and yearly increasing associations are bewildering and lacking in a strong collective voice.
