l Captains of the British tourist industry have finally got the chance to tell the Balearic government face to face what they have been telling the Bulletin for the past year, that they want the regional Ministry for Tourism and its various tourism agencies, to step up its game and revive the flagging promotional relationships with the UK tour operators in order to boost the UK market further.

The word from British tour operators is that the Balearics will have a good summer in 2013, but it could be much better if the Balearics began cooperating more with the British market in order to boost demand and therefore generate more income and business for the local economy.
