    1. there's a defenant plan to accelerate the growth of tourism. it's a known plan.

    2. I don;t know what you mean since the sentence seems to missing a verb.
    if you meant to write "accelerates" then the meaning is that any plan you have will accelerate the growth of tourism. you just need to have one.

    helpful?

    sentence 2 now means: any plan that you have will be able to accelerate etc....

    the difference is in the certainty of the plan
