The Minister spent time with students from the university’s Tourism Management degree courses as they discussed their studies, business ideas and career plans.
He said: “The future of the tourist industry is something very close to my heart, and without question its success depends upon recruiting talented people who are looking to make their mark in their careers. Greenwich’s students have shown me just how creative and enthusiastic they are.
“It is wonderful to meet young people with such a passion for their subject, and a privilege to listen to the ideas of such a highly enterprising group. It strikes me they could not have been studying for careers in this industry at a more ideal place than the University of Greenwich, and I look forward to them taking their ideas and skills out into the wider world.”
