CEOs from top travel companies met with senior officials at the White House this month to express support for President Obama’s national travel and tourism strategy and to suggest policies and initiatives that would further economic growth and job creation in the nation’s $1.9 trillion travel industry, which supports 14.4 million U.S. jobs.

“The travel industry has the ability — and stands ready — to quickly hire many of the unemployed workers in our country but, to do that, we must have policies in place that increase travel to and within the U.S.,” said Roger Dow, president and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association. www.ustravel.org
