WTTC warns US over bor­der clo­sures

Travel Daily ME - - News -

David Scowsill, pres­i­dent & CEO of the World Travel & Tourism Coun­cil (WTTC), has warned the US that it risks en­dan­ger­ing its tourism in­dus­try if it con­tin­ues to close borders to cer­tain na­tions. Speak­ing in Las Ve­gas, Scowsill said that the US is seem­ing to take the same path it took af­ter 9/11, which he said led to "a decade of eco­nomic stag­na­tion in the travel and tourism sec­tor". He also ad­vised the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion to "keep tourism out of pol­i­tics".
