The EC has formulated policies which can influence the location, nature and organization of tourism "production', at both the sub-national and transfrontier levels. This article commences with a review of tourism administration and policy formulation at different spatial levels. The possible effects of the Channel Tunnel on domestic and overseas tourism generation are then considered. The extent to which opportunities for tourism growth are realized depends upon the provision of transport infrastructure, tourist accommodation and attractions, which are also examined. The subsequent section considers the transport infrastructure provision which is necessary to meet the additional tourism demand generated by the Channel Tunnel link with continental Europe. The implications of the establishment of a Transfrontier Development Programme and Euroregion for tourism development in Kent are then considered, and the penultimate section discusses the effects of the Transfrontier Programme at the local level. -from Authors
