As the US expands its travel footprint abroad, it’s looking to bring back some of its most popular tourist destinations to boost its economic profile.
The US is already a big player in Latin America, hosting the World Cup and hosting the Winter Olympics in 2024.
But in 2018, the US is set to become the world’s third-largest tourism exporter, after Japan and China.
And the US has already begun to add more destinations to its itineraries, starting with the US’s first trip to Madagascar in 2022.
To see where these destinations are, we reached out to the US Department of Commerce’s Bureau of International Economic Affairs (BIIA) to see what its plans are for the US and Madagascar.
And it turns out that the US will be expanding its reach even further by adding some new destinations to the itinerary.
The US is planning to build a “Tourism and Tourism Infrastructure Center” in Madagascar.
The US government has been working on this project for more than a decade, according to the BIIA.
The facility is intended to help the US to become a “first-class partner” in hosting its own tourism and tourism infrastructure projects.
This is what the US Bureau of Tourism & Tourism Development and the US Embassy in Madagascar have in mind for the new facility:The US Embassy will open the center in 2018 to serve as a hub for bilateral tourism between the US, Madagascar, and the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMSP), a group of countries located in the region.
Malaysia has been a key US partner in the development of tourism and tourist infrastructure projects in the US for decades.
As a result, the new US tourism and development center in Madagascar is expected to be the first to host such a project.
According to the bureau, the facility is expected “to expand the US economic impact in Madagascar and increase the amount of foreign direct investment in the country.”
The BIIAs new tourism and infrastructure hub in Madagascar will serve as the hub for both US tourism, and tourism-related infrastructure projects that support the economic development of both countries.
In a bid to make the US more appealing to foreigners, the BIFI has been exploring new ways to attract foreign tourists to the island.
One such initiative is the US-Malaysian Tourism Exchange (USMTA).USMATA is a partnership between the American Embassy in Malaya and the Malayan Government, which aims to promote bilateral tourism and hospitality projects in both countries, including tourism and hotel development, as well as tourism education, education, and training.
The exchange is also in line with US President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to “Make America Great Again.”
“The USMTA is an initiative to promote economic growth, job creation, and economic opportunities for US citizens, as we strive to increase economic ties with the island of Madagascar,” the USBIS stated in a statement.
As the US grows its tourist footprint abroad and diversifies its international operations, the bureau is also planning to expand its presence in Madagascar to help boost its tourism-based economic profile and to promote regional cooperation.
“The Bureau of Overseas Visitors and Tourism Development is working with the United States Department of State and the Department of Tourism in the Republics efforts to promote tourism and economic development in Madagascar,” said the US embassy in Madagascar’s statement.
