President Barack Obama has been discussing publicly the importance of job creation in getting the nation to fully recover from the economic downturn, such as with his current legislative measure.

However, Hawaii’s visitor industry is already doing its share in contributing to job growth in the state, according to a statement from Mike McCartney, president and CEO of Hawaii Tourism Authority.
McCartney also expressed in his statement an expected growth in visitor industry jobs for 2011.
His statement reads as follows:

“Hawaii’s visitor industry helped to provide 152,864 jobs in the state in 2010, the largest generator of jobs among the major industry sectors. Tourism is also the largest single source of private capital into Hawaii, with visitor spending reaching $11.4 billion and contributing to $1.1 billion total tax revenue.
With new airlift, marketing and destination experience-based programs, we anticipate the number of tourism related jobs to grow to 159,542 by the end of 2011. Tourism is a natural export for Hawaii and the U.S. and provides a strong foundation for our economy.”
