Florida Governor confesses the state still receivingFlorida in the initial three months of this year witnessed 31.1 million visitors, as expressed by Scott on Monday after visiting Miami’s Jungle Island. In comparison to 2016, the figure is a jump of 2.5 percent this year. Regardless of the fact that news events might turn the visitors away, almost 113 million tourists, majorly American nationals, visited last year. Unforeseen incidents like Pulse shootings in Orlando and outbreak of the Zika virus in South Florida couldn’t deter the visitors from exploring Florida. Though few international tourism experts had predicted that the Government of Donald Trump might cause a slump in US international travel but that doesn’t seem to be the case in Florida. According to Visit Florida, the first three months of the year, the state’s tourism arm witnessed 2.2 percent less Canadians and 1.8 percent less international visitors in Florida whatsoever. However, the decline was steeper in first-quarter 2016 from 2015 in aforesaid two categories: 16.8 per cent and 5.8 per cent, respectively.


On the other hand, Scott warned by saying that the potential cuts to Florida’s tourism marketing agency stand a chance to cause disaster to the growth. State legislators voted to slash two-thirds of the financial support to Visit Florida after marking some dubious agency contracts. The cut will be effective from July this year if Scott signs the new state budget.
