On 15 October 2009, The Minister of Consular Services, Chris Bryant, met with representatives from the travel industry and Non Governmental Organisations (NGO) to discuss important issues affecting British travellers abroad.

The FCO ‘Know Before You Go’ campaign was acknowledged as a useful resource for all those involved in communicating key messages on safe travel to the British traveller.
