The National Travel and Tourism Strategy – the newly announced initiative to stimulate domestic and international travel to create jobs and help rebuild the U.S. economy – was praised by ASTA CEO Tony Gonchar for its “strong and decisive steps” in making the United States the world’s top global tourism destination.
ASTA was a player in developing the president’s recent movements to ease incoming tourism, so it’s no surprise that they still think it’s a great idea. Still, it’s good to see their continued enthusiasm for its successes.
