As the partial U.S. federal government shutdown hits the two-week mark, President Donald J. Trump and congressional leaders will convene in the White House today. The hotel industry is on watch as the closure of facilities at national parks have impacted tourism.
The Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA) weighed in on the ongoing partial government shutdown: “Fortunately, previous funding measures ensure that government agencies vital to our industry will continue to operate without significant interruption,” according to AAHOA President/CEO. “For AAHOA members who own properties around national parks, and who typically feel the effects of a shutdown immediately, most of the National Parks Service will remain open, although visitor centers and administrative offices may be closed. AAHOA supports a quick resolution to this situation, and our team in Washington will continue to monitor these developments closely.”
