February 4, 2017 Destination Hawaii No Comments Email Email
George D. Szigeti, president and CEO of the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA), issued the following statement commenting on the release of Hawaii’s visitor statistics for 2016.

 Hawaii’s tourism industry pumped a record $15.6 billion into our economy and $1.82 billion into the State’s tax coffers in 2016, revenue that’s made a major impact for both the private and public sectors. Moreover, the number of jobs the tourism industry is supporting statewide increased to an estimated 190,000, which is about 15,000 more jobs than the year before.

“Mahalo to all of tourism’s stakeholders and industry partners throughout the State for contributing to the success of Hawaii’s most important industry.

“We are committed to maintaining this positive momentum in 2017, while also assessing as to how HTA can collaborate with industry partners and community advocates to ensure that promoting tourism is balanced with the perpetuation of Hawaiian culture and protection of Hawaii’s natural resources.”
