U.S. Welcomes 1,000 Chinese Tourists

Travel Agent was on location at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan earlier this week, where we helped to welcome 1,000 Chinese tourists to the United States. The event was joint effort sponsored by Brand USA, the China National Tourism Administration (CNTA), and NYC & Company, and was focused on promoting travel and tourism for the U.S. and China as well as generating good will between the two nations.
