Christopher J. Nassetta responds to President Obama's Travel and Tourism Plan
Christopher J. Nassetta, President and CEO, Hilton Worldwide, issued the following statement today in response to President Obama's announcement of several new initiatives to increase travel and tourism in the United States:
"After President Obama's speech today, we are encouraged to see significant progress being made on welcoming more visitors to the United States in a responsible and secure way. The potential exists to begin adding hundreds of billions of dollars to the economy and creating more than one million U.S.-based jobs in the next decade. This is a stimulus that everyone can agree on, regardless of political affiliation, and doesn't cost the taxpayer a dime since the expenses are offset by visa application fees and other charges. We look forward to continuing to work together as an industry and a nation on this critical issue."
