About the Catalan Tourist Board

The Catalan Tourist Board (ACT) is the body of the Government of Catalonia responsible for carrying out tourism promotion policies. It replaced the Turisme de Catalunya consortium, which had been responsible for this area, at the beginning of 2010.

The Catalan Tourist Board was created as a public law institution of the Government of Catalonia by Law 15/2007 of 5 December, with the aim of promoting Catalonia as a leading tourist destination, based on its quality and social and economic profitability, in accordance with the powers that article 171 of the Statute of Autonomy of Catalonia confers in the area of tourism.

The consortium's replacement by the board, which is at the forefront of raising the profile of Catalonia's appeal abroad, was a milestone in Catalonia's promotional strategy. The major new aspect, which is now becoming increasingly important, is co-management and co-participation by the private sector in promoting and selling what Catalonia has to offer all over the world.

Obtaining measurable results is one of the priority guidelines for the new body, which is focusing on tourist resources and companies in the sector. The ACT supports product marketing, and also promotes self-generation of businesses' own financing resources.
