Monday, 18 June 2012
According to U.S. President Barack Obama in a speech via video at the Caribbean Tourism Summit and Outlook Seminar 2012, his administration is taking steps to ease visa requirements for visitors to the U.S.
The Caribbean Tourism Summit and Outlook Seminar 2012 which took place in Jamaica from June 15 to June 16 looked at issues facing regional tourism and methods to improve its competitiveness.
U.S. President Barack Obama spoke via video conference to those in attendance at the summit. "Tourism is the number one service we export and that is because we have a great product to sell," he said. The President stressed the importance to the economy of U.S. tourism. He noted that tens of millions of visitors come to places like the Grand Canyon and Disney World every year, which earns the U.S. billions of dollars.
"I want more of these tourists to come visit, I want America to be the top tourist destination in the world," added the President, "earlier this year we joined with business leaders to find better ways to market our tourist destinations and to make sure foreign visitors get the information they need.".
"We are also protecting our borders, while trying to make it easier for tourists from more countries to visit without a visa, and we are speeding up visa processing in countries like China and Brazil so more people can come and spend their money here,", the President concluded.
