I am a student of the University of Central Florida - Rosen College of Hospitality Management in Orlando Florida with a major in Hospitality Management. It has come to my attention that the United States is not a member of World Tourism Organization. As much as the United States has benefited from tourism, I have to wonder why we are not a member.
I am convinced that the United States should be a member of this organization and I am going to present to you some valid reasons why the United States should become a member of this large organization.
Over one billion person trips in and out of the United States (2012)
11.2% of the world GOP (give full name) (UNWTO)
Employs 214 million people (8.9% of the global workforce)
Leading producer of tax revenue
4% annual forecast growth (in text citation) If these facts are from the web cite (web date)
Despite the fact that in (2009) four percent of the annual growth of tourism around the world is estimated to have declined, tourism in the United States grew by seven percent; and provided the United States with an income of $852 billion (web date). As you can see becoming a member of UNWTO is a tremendous advantage for the United States.
Becoming a member of UNWTO would be a substantial gain not only for the United States, but for Florida in particular. Because of Florida’s geographic location, and its year round sunny weather, it magnetizes tourists from all the Americas and the Caribbean. My observation while shopping in the malls of South Florida, is that tourists create more income for Florida more than its residents.
Senator, I hope I have impressed you enough and as you study these statistics it will perk your vision of the benefits of the United States becoming a member of UNWTO.
