The immigration policies of Donald trump (Donald Trump) could cost the US billions of dollars that will be lost from tourism.
According to forecasts, this year the USA will visit 4.3 million fewer tourists. In addition, the financial losses will amount to approximately 7.4 billion dollars, says Adam Sachs (Adam Sacks), the founder of the company Tourism Economics. In 2016, foreign tourists spent US $ 250 billion, and the forecast Sachs was based on data ForwardKeys, which showed a decrease in the number of ticket orders from Western Europe.
In the period from 28 January to 4 February, the number of bookings fell by 14 percent compared to last year. The number of ticket orders from the Middle East fell sharply to 38 percent. The company says that it has sent its findings to the White house on March 3, before the signing of the revised order on immigration.
