White House

Friends:

I hope all is well. I am writing to invite you to join us today, Wednesday, September 19, 2012, at 12:00 p.m. EST, for a conference call with senior White House officials to discuss the Obama Administration's travel and tourism progress report released earlier this morning. This report highlights the progress made since President Obama signed the tourism executive order. Below please find more details on today's White House announcement and call on travel and tourism:

WHAT: White House Travel and Tourism Call
WHEN: Today, Wednesday, September 19, 2012
Start Time: 12:00 p.m. EDT
Dial In: (800) 398-9367
Note: This call is off the record and not for press purposes.

Earlier this year, President Obama issued an Executive Order on travel and tourism that directed federal agencies to aggressively expand the nation's ability to attract and welcome visitors, while maintaining the highest standards of security. Today, the White House released a progress report from the U.S. Departments of State and Homeland Security that outlines the activities underway to meet the President's goal of boosting the travel and tourism industry in the United States. This report discusses the steps taken to achieve the President's visa and foreign visitor processing goals and the current progress of these and other measures to significantly bolster international travel and tourism.

We ask that you please share this invitation with your networks and look forward to speaking with you later today.
