The Obama administration has released the National Travel and Tourism Strategy from the Task Force on Travel and Competetiveness, marking the first time a President has made travel and tourism a national priority.  The Strategy expands the government’s efforts to market the United States as a destination; sets a goal of increasing American jobs by attracting and welcoming 100 million international visitors annually by the end of 2021, more than a 50 percent increase over the number expected in 2012; and expanding the Visa Waiver Program, improving visa processing, expanding the trusted traveler program and improving screening processes at airports and using grants to improve transportation infrastructure.
