US Travel Association: US decision to advance reauthorisation of Brand USA is 'huge step'

14 November, 2019

US Travel Association EVP for public affairs and policy Tori Barnes reported (14-Nov-2019) the US House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Commerce's decision to advance the reauthorisation of Brand USA to passage is "another huge step" towards increasing US jobs and exports. Ms Barnes stated: "International visitation to the US is flat at a time when global travel is booming, which means that we are leaving a huge opportunity for economic growth on the table", adding the "situation would be far worse without Brand USA's demonstrated effectiveness at bringing lucrative international visitor dollars to our shores".
