Industry Position

Travel is a freedom cherished by citizens throughout the world. The United States travel industry supports just measures that protect this freedom for everyone, everywhere. Travel fosters understanding and understanding creates a climate that nurtures peace, stability, economic growth and democratic rights.

In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, the travel industry was especially hard hit. We account for 6 percent of U.S. employment but suffered 30 percent of job losses-375,000 jobs have disappeared in travel and tourism. There is no question in our minds that a war with Iraq will be yet another great blow to an already fragile industry.
