Business: International visitor traffic to the United States

UNITED STATES (HawaiiNewsNow) - This morning we are going to talk about the international visitor traffic to the United States.

In 2017, America got 77 million international visitors, but that was up only 0.7% from the year before.

Other statistics in 2017 show that U.S. tourism from Ireland, Brazil and South Korea were up.

Tourism from Mexico and the Middle East went down though.

Visitor spending also rose 2 percent, which is about the same as inflation.
