US President Barack Obama visiting CAMBODIA: 2016- WORLD BEST TOURISM DESTINATION

 

United States President Barack Obama is preparing to sign off his mandate and his vision on tourism remains unique.

Even if he failed in promoting United States on international tourism stage, he remains the most avid president in visiting WORLD BEST TOURIST DESTINATION countries and trying to offer inspiration for US tourism industry from his visits.

In his trips he did crossed almost every WORLD BEST TOURIST DESTINATION nation except Zimbabwe with who maintained tense relations (but the new US President Donald Trump will soon visit the nation ruled by his friend President Robert Mugabe).

Here is what Barack Obama learned from visiting WORLD BEST TOURISM DESTINATIONS during the years in the oval office.

American Press summarizes these acquisitions in announcements of the President Barack Obama that will move to reduce airport waiting times for foreign travelers arriving in the United States in order to boost tourism, the White House said.

United States are trying to get on the list of world best tourist destination taking  aim at the visa facilitation procedures and opening the borders for tourist, specially from Brazil and China from which Obama wants the United States to lure 10 more million visitors by 2025.

The administration says nearly eight million jobs in America are linked to tourism.

World Best Tourist Destination Award supported the recent winner Zimbabwe to have an 80% growth in tourism, arrivals and tourism related recipes, and for 2013 winner, Laos PDR an annual increase of 3 million visitors.

This is making the president hopes of getting more than 10 million tourist in the next 10 years a target within reach.

We must note that: on 27 to 29 July 2015 United States President toured Ethiopia, the winner of World Best Tourist Destination Award for 2015, having a chance to observe firsthand the benefits of opening the country for tourism.

WHAT WILL BE 45TH US PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP EFFECT ON TOURISM?

WHAT WILL BE 45TH US PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP EFFECT ON TOURISM?

Today Washington gets in a festive mood and tourism industry starts garnering hopes.

As Donald J. Trump is taking office, he promised a bright future for US tourism: getting the country on World Best Tourism Destination list, making historical cities on Eastern Coast of United States to be recognized as World Capital of Culture, all are on the to do list of the new administration drafted by the new President on his first day in office, writes European Journal of Tourism Washington correspondent.

But the analysts are not so convinced that Trump effect on tourism will be this positive. The Telegraph ask the readers : Who will visit an America ruled by Donald Trump? – and make a prophecy that not too many.

The New York Times in a central editorial make`s the same point: What Impact Will Trump Have on Tourism?

 

The analysis result sounds cautious: new immigration procedures that make the customs and border process harder, the scrutiny of particular groups of people); and the perception of how welcoming and safe (or not) the United States is are growing to weigh heavily on the future of US tourism.

Donald Trump John promises that he will put his managerial skills in the benefit of world tourism.

 

Others cited in the article are right a way tenebrous: attendees at the World Travel Market London conference were coming up and “offering condolences.”( Gary Leff).

 

The list of worries on tourism faith under Donald Trump is long and wide spanning from: banning of minority groups, hostile policies towards Middle Eastern travellers, Cuban policy, US dollar strength in ratings, air fares tariffs, immigration policies and what role the Trump hotels will have in the great scheme of things.

Tourism is all about optimism and confidence and the new US President Donald Trump Jr. promised in his inaugural address that: hee will make US a World Best Tourist Destination country and a great country for all !

Let`s wait and see! The competition is still open after all!
