U.S. Tourism industry gets anxious on Trump’s budget proposal

Published on : Monday, June 5, 2017

download (19)Hobart situated in northwest Indiana, might not be America’s one of the most preferred tourist destinations. However, few weeks back, a group of English travel agents were at Hobart in order to get a taste of Americana, ride an open wagon through a field in Broken Wagon ranch with more than 100 bisons. The group had a sojourn at the old-fashioned Valpo Velvet Ice Cream stand close to Valparaiso and rushed up to the sandy white, 100-feet-tall dunes lying on the coastlines of Lake Michigan.

The experience was unique and different to tell the travelers back home about.

Nevertheless, luring international visitors have become increasingly significant to the multibillion dollar tourism economy of the U.S. This is the reason why tourism gurus are worried over the budget proposal of President Donald Trump to get rid of funding for an organization like Brand USA, which markets America as a great place to visit and shop. The President is willing to transfer the $93 million per year from the bucket of Brand USA to the federal Immigrant and Customs Enforcement agency in order to fortify national security along the Mexican border and elsewhere. Majority of the money comes from the $14 visa application fee which is charged from the foreigners. Later, this is used to attract international visitors via promotional events like inviting travel agents from other countries to check out what America has to offer and other media advertising propositions.
