1. Release of International Visitors Arrivals for 1999

A record 48.5 million international travelers visited the United States in 1999. Canada's stronger economy, complimented by a recovering Asia, along with Western Europe's relatively steady economic growth all played a major role in the stronger than expected 5 percent growth in arrivals to the United States.

According to the World Tourism Organization, the U.S. growth rate was one of the highest among the top visited countries in 1999. Overseas traveler growth was up by 3 percent, totaling 24.5 million arrivals, comprising 51 percent of the total international arrivals to the U.S.

2. New Outreach Pages


To better facilitate and organize the online research and analysis, TI has developed a new Outreach section. These new pages are meant to improve the "Stats Central" section of the web site providing faster access to the most up-to-date analysis and summary reports.

The new Outreach section will feature both in-bound with the first page focused on the arrivals analysis, arrival summary tables, in-depth arrival reports, and links to the U.S. Foreign Commercial Service.

During Tourism Week (May 8 - 14, 2000) TI will add 23 more outreach pages covering all world regions and top overseas markets. These targeted pages will provide market specific analysis, summary reports, access to in-depth research reports, press releases on important events and trade shows as well as links to U.S. & Foreign Commercial Service offices.
