U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow issued the following statement reacting the Department of Commerce's international travel forecast:
“This latest report aligns with the trend that we were already seeing, which shows that the U.S. is not as competitive today as it was two years ago in the global travel marketplace and we are losing market share to other countries. The Visit U.S. Coalition looks forward to working with the Trump administration to address this problem, which has considerable ramifications for the broader U.S. economy.”
