U.S. Competitiveness in Travel and Tourism Source: United Nations World Tourism Organization (Jan. 2013)
Brand USA Private sector organization funded in part by up to $100 million in fees on travelers from visa waiver countries OTTI is the liaison to Brand USA. Actively marketing in international markets to increase demand. Working with partners and destinations from across the country and with federal agencies.

NEI Priority Markets Origin Country2012 Receipts/Forecast Per Traveler (18/12)
Opportunities Global Growth – global travel and tourism is expected to grow by 4% through 2020 (UNWTO) Promotion – Brand USA active engagement in multiple markets will help us stay competitive with other countries that have ongoing national marketing campaigns. Changes in Travel Facilitation Policy – risk-based screening identifies and removes low-risk travelers through trusted traveler programs. Private Sector Engagement – provides insights, sets priorities. Collaboration – strong working relationships within ITA and across agencies will increase efficiency.
Risks and Issues Economic downturns in source markets (resulting in lower household incomes). Natural and man-made disasters in the United States. As visitation continues to increase to our country, travel facilitation systems may get overwhelmed, resulting in long wait times for visas, long lines upon entry, etc. Ability of Brand USA to successfully raise $100 in order to receive the full matching funds.

Industry and Analysis Spotlight on Aerospace July 16, 2013 Prepared by Office of Transportation and Machinery
Aerospace The aerospace industry includes: Large Civil Aircraft (e.g. Boeing 737) Business Jets General Aviation Aircraft (including helicopters) Aircraft Engines Commercial Satellites and Launches Unmanned Aerial Systems Aerospace Parts Aerospace Products and Equipment (e.g. NextGen Air Traffic Management)
NEI Priority Markets: (Figures based on Year-End 2012) *Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and UAE Source: U.S. Census Bureau 1.European Union$33.2 B 2.GCC * $12.2 B 3.China $9.1 B 4.Japan$9.0 B 5.Brazil$6.8 B 6.Canada$6.6 B 7.Korea$3.9 B 8.Turkey$2.0 B 9.Russia$1.7 B 10.India$1.5 B 11.South Africa$534 M U.S. Aerospace Exports to Target Markets (Green Box Countries)
Opportunities In general, U.S. aerospace manufacturers see continued global growth for their products. Looking ahead over the next 20 years, Boeing sees demand for 35,280 new airplanes, valued at $4.8 trillion (at list prices). Growing markets like China, India and Latin America show promise for increased exports: Aircraft Spare parts Maintenance services Flight simulators Airport equipment, including air traffic management U.S. manufacturers are world leading producers of new technologies: Unmanned systems Green technologies Composites NextGen Air Traffic Management Communication and imaging satellites Reform of U.S. export control laws simplifies the process for U.S. companies to export many products that were previously on the more strictly controlled ITAR list.
Risks and Issues Foreign governments seeking to create/bolster their domestic industries create programs to subsidize their manufacturers. Foreign governments also create OECD-inconsistent programs to finance their aerospace exports. The aerospace industry is highly regulated both in the United States and abroad. Fees in foreign markets can be an issue. Many of the fastest growing markets rate poorly on ease-of-doing business rankings. Many sales campaigns and infrastructure projects may take years to come to fruition. Investment in the domestic market may be necessary to win a sale (may be mandated offsets or just local business practice). U.S. products are expensive (but high quality) (e.g. easier to buy 1 non-U.S. produced helicopter a year than 1 U.S. helicopter that will last 10 years).
