TRAVEL INDUSTRY PUSHES TO GET INTERNATIONAL TOURIST ISSUES IN TO PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN

Rate this Entry

Let's hope they're successful in their new campaign. The TIA also released findings of a poll of voters in the upcoming primary states of South Carolina and Florida. From the Travel Industry Association:

"We've hit a tipping point," said Roger Dow, President and CEO of the TIA. 
"Voters believe that government can do far more to improve the travel system and
they are looking for a candidate who realizes that they too have a schedule to
keep."

The first stop on the "Change the Debate" campaign is South
Carolina where billboards are running in Myrtle Beach and Columbia and travel
industry leaders are on the ground for tonight's Republican debate to discuss
the critical contribution travel makes to the U.S. economy.  Looking ahead, TIA
will be working with more than 400 convention and visitor bureaus across the
country to highlight an American travel system that is in crisis and in need of
national leadership. 

"Outdated tracking systems, delays and congestion
combined with a 17 percent decline in overseas visitation to the United States
since 9/11 have taken their toll on the American traveler, the economy and the
U.S. image abroad," Dow said. "We're taking our campaign on the road to make
sure the candidates know that improving the travel process is both good policy
and good politics."

    I wonder if this industry which is very immigrant dependent for all types of jobs is going to join the fight on Immigration as well.
