Readout of Secretary Raimondo’s Meeting with the U.S. Travel and Tourism Advisory Board


This week, Secretary Gina M. Raimondo met with the U.S. Travel and Tourism Advisory Board (TTAB) to underscore the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to advancing the growth of the U.S. travel and tourism industry including through implementation of the 2022 National Travel and Tourism Strategy across the U.S. government.

Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Industry and Analysis Grant Harris provided updates on action taken by Commerce and agencies of the Tourism Policy Council to accelerate the recovery and growth of the travel and tourism industry, including by working to make travel and tourism communities more resilient, destinations more accessible for travelers with disabilities, and to support job growth across the country.

On behalf of the Secretary, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Travel and Tourism Alex Lasry charged the TTAB with developing additional recommendations in early 2024 to further inform the implementation of the National Travel and Tourism Strategy.

The TTAB is the private sector advisory body to the U.S. Secretary of Commerce on matters relating to the travel and tourism industry in the United States. Furthermore, the National Travel and Tourism Strategy was developed and is administered by the National Travel and Tourism Office, located within Commerce’s International Trade Administration.
