“We applaud the administration for moving to reduce travel restraints on international shoppers and tourists. For the last three years, NRF and our partners in the Discover America Partnership have been advocating significant reforms to our visa policy, and we are happy to see progress on the National Travel and Tourism Strategy,” Shay says.
He adds that the announcement is a win-win and it will help make the United States a first-rate destination for Chinese visitors, increase cultural and economic exchange between the world’s two largest economies, and produce tangible economic benefits for American businesses and workers, especially those in the hospitality, retail and tourism sectors.
“Encouraging more international shoppers to visit the United States to eat at our restaurants, stay at our hotels and shop in our stores is a retail industry priority. We applaud the US and Chinese governments on this joint announcement,” he says.
