Ohio sees increase of international visitors in the midst of Trump slumpOhio in Unite States welcomed 7 percent more visitors from overseas than the year before.

 

 

This data revealed in Ohio when the international visits in United States have dropped wholly.

 

 

The international travel to the United States is expected to drop even more in 2017, in what some are calling the Trump Slump.

 

 

Through June, the international travel to the United States is down nearly 4 percent.

 

 

The tourism experts in the United States attribute that drop to several factors, including a strong U.S. dollar, which makes it more expensive to travel here.

 

 

While there is another reason, the rhetoric and policies of President Donald Trump, which may be seen as unwelcoming by some international travellers.

 

 

The travel to the U.S. from Mexico – which sends more tourists to the United States than any country except Canada – is down a whopping 9.4 percent in 2017.

 

 

Ohio seems to be bucking the national trend. The mid western US state attracting an increasing number of overseas travelers in recent years.

 

 

And the number is only expected to increase in the coming years, as Cleveland welcomes two new nonstop flights from Iceland starting in May.

 

 

The officials at Destination Cleveland, the  visitors bureau of Ohio, are exploring ways to market the city to European travellers who might visit Ohio via the new flights on Wow Air and Icelandair.
