The world, we hope, will move on from the last four years. We’ve found it quite surreal the way the world, no we, the US retreated from the world. We hope that at this point, given the imminent change in leadership, we will return to a place of leadership in the world.
We also agree with this statement from the U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow.
“The American travel industry congratulates President-elect Joe Biden on his victory,” U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow said in a statement. “We applaud President-elect Biden’s objective of helping the industries most heavily impacted by the pandemic. The travel industry accounts for more than a third of overall U.S. unemployment, and policies to promote relief, recovery, and stimulus for travel businesses are integral to a U.S. economic turnaround.”
We know that the travel industry in the US is hurting, as it the industry everywhere. The biggest hurdle to the industry getting back on its feet is getting control of COVID-19. We are are sure that under an administration that actually recognizes that COVID-19 is a problem, and is killing people, and there ARE things we can do to prevent those deaths, and that will go a long way toward getting all of us traveling again.
We honestly hope with the change in administration and the eventual suppression of COVID-19 that America and Americans will be welcomed overseas once more.
So in the words of my favorite fictional president “What’s next?”
