India becomes one of the vital tourism origin nations in the US

Published on : Wednesday, August 23, 2017

indexAccording to a high ranked official, India is most likely one of the most important countries in terms of tourism origin for the US representing huge growth possibility.

 

In 2016, Indian visitors had expended almost a record USD 13.6 billion in the US placing the country on the sixth position among the top 10 international markets for the US in regards to visitor spending.

 

According to the recent released yearly report of the US Department of Commerce, almost over 1.17 million Indians visited the US last year, ranking India 11th in regards to attracting highest number of international visitors to the US.

 

To quote Chris Thompson, Brand USA president and CEO, “Indias probably one of our most significant origin countries, as it relates to the whole phenomena of visiting friends and relatives. He mentioned that there is a massive growth possibility because the US at present captures only 5.5 per cent of the outbound Indian travel market.

 

“We have a large Indian population within the United States. We have a great relationship with India as it relates to people coming over for educational opportunities and then therefore families come over following those students.

 

“The relationship between the two largest democracies in the world is really good one in general but certainly as it relates to travel and tourism between our two countries,” Thompson said.
