The value of tourism in Shropshire shows visitors spend over £539million on goods and services, and the number of visits to the county reached more than 11.9 million.

Visit Shropshire's brief for the new site is to build on this success by boosting awareness of the area's extensive tourism offer and increasing visitor numbers and spending.

The site aims to inspire the visitor to see more and stay longer by showcasing the region's portfolio of tourism members using stunning imagery, combined with an improved visitor journey. Featuring the organisation's new branding, the site emphasises Shropshire's credentials as a destination, where visitors can explore the picturesque towns and villages, breath-taking walks in the countryside, UNESCO World Heritage site in Ironbridge escape to a woodland cabin in Shropshire Hills or enjoy fantastic family attraction or event.

Larger imagery, accommodation booking via a built in booking portal for individual businesses all help to increase Shropshire's providers' exposure and stimulate bookings.

The inclusion of an extensive news and articles section delivers a great resource for visitors and helps to boost search engine rankings.
Recent insight from VisitEngland highlights how tourists are increasingly doing more research and planning before travelling, have an interest in creating itineraries and are looking for genuine authenticity in destinations, all of which have informed the look, feel and design of the website.

Mark Hooper, Project lead at Visit Shropshire comments: "Our new visitor website is light years ahead of its predecessor and will be a virtual window for all that Shropshire has to offer the tourist. Combined with our fresh new brand we want the first-time and returning visitors to be intrigued and excited about coming to explore the region."

The brand-new website comes in conjunction with Visit Shropshire's offer of Free membership to help businesses through the current Covid-19 crisis affecting the tourism industry.

CAIRO – 11 June 2020: Egypt's Presidential Advisor for Health Affairs Mohamed Tag El-Din revealed that Egypt was chosen as a vice-chair of the African Union COVID-19 Response Fund, noting that President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi has been doing a lot of effort following up with the epidemic updates and impact on the African continent.

During statements to Al-Hayat Privet channel, Thursday, Tag El-Din explained that Egypt was choosing and that he is representing the country at the Fund board.

Answering a question on Sisi's participation earlier at the mini-video conference with a number of African leaders, including members of the African Union Bureau, headed by President of South Africa and African Union, Cyril Ramaphosa, Tag El-Din said that Egypt aims at raising funds to support African countries confronting COVID-19.

President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi affirmed, Thursday, that confronting the novel Coronavirus, (COVID-19) demands close and continues cooperation between all African countries, and continuing to urge the international financial institutions to provide economic support to African countries.

During his participation in a video conference with a number of African leaders, President Sisi stressed the need to continue supporting African medical teams to combat the spread of the Coronavirus, and to work to provide the continent's needs for medical supplies and equipment.

Sisi added that facing the repercussions of the spread of the Corona epidemic should be carried out in parallel with the rest of the efforts to combat the various risks that threaten the security and stability of African countries, especially terrorism, and extremism.

According to the African Union website; "COVID-19 Response Fund was established by the Chairperson of the African Union Commission Moussa Faki Mahamat on 26 March 2020, with the aim of strengthening the continental response to COVID-19 and mitigate its socio economic and humanitarian impact on African populations."

The launch followed a meeting of the Bureau of the African Union Heads of State and Government, chaired President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa, who is also the Chairperson of the African Union for 2020. The website stated, adding that members of the bureau are: President Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta of Mali;, President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta of the Republic of Kenya; President Félix Tshisekedi of the Democratic Republic of Congo; and President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi of Egypt.
