|Tourism Industries International Travel and Forecast for the US -- Chart 3
Previous   Back to Index Page   Next
Let's go straight to the bottom line now -- what tourism from our international visitors means to this economy. In 1997, the nearly 48 million international visitors to the U.S. spent more than $73 billion in the U.S., excluding passenger fares! That spending supported more than 1 million U.S. jobs and generated more than $9.3 billion in taxes. 1998 estimates appear to be similar at this point, maintaining our strength in the economy despite sluggish growth.
