Federal Travel Policies and National Strategy

The National Travel and Tourism Office (NTTO) in ITA’s Industry and Analysis unit works to enhance the international competitiveness of the U.S. travel and tourism industry and increase its exports, thereby creating U.S. employment and economic growth. One of the ways we do this is through the development and implementation of travel and tourism policy, strategy, and advocacy initiatives through collaboration with domestic and international public and private sector stakeholders.
