Karleigh Davies, Business Development Officer said “We have some fantastic destinations in Neath Port Talbot - Afan Forest Park, the waterfalls in the Vale of Neath and Margam Country Park to name just a few. Tourism in Wales is currently experiencing a period of significant growth and this project will assist tourism businesses in the rural wards to take advantage of this opportunity.  I am looking forward to working closely with our tourism operators to deliver this exciting project”
