TEXAS tourism, one of the biggest industries in the state, fell 7.4% in 2016, according to the Texas Tourism Bureau.
The tourism bureau, which oversees more than 20,000 companies in Texas, reported that the decline came from two factors: a decline in visitors from the Caribbean and a decline from Mexico.
According to the bureau, tourism was down 7.1% from 2015.
Mexico’s tourism declined 10.2%.
Mexico was the country that was hardest hit by the tourism drop.
According the bureau: Mexico experienced the largest decrease in visits from the U.S. The United States posted the second-highest number of visitors to Mexico in 2016.
That number was down 1.5 million.
The U.K. and Canada recorded the largest drops in visits.
Visitors to the U., Australia and Canada were down 10.6% and 7.5% respectively.
The number of tourists in Mexico fell by more than 1 million, the bureau reported.
Texas tourism was the biggest casualty.
It was down 11.4%, compared to 8.7% for 2016.
Texas Tourism reported that its overall impact to the state’s economy was $4.3 billion.
Tourism accounted for more than $2.4 billion in 2017 state revenue.
Tourism was a major driver of Texas’ economy.
Texas accounted for nearly two-thirds of the state economy in 2017, the same percentage as the next-highest state.
The Texas Tourism Department reported that in the first quarter of 2019, tourism accounted for over $6.4 million in state revenue, an increase of almost $2 million from the same period in 2016 and nearly $1.8 million from 2016 to 2019.
It’s expected that the tourism industry will see more than 2,000 new companies and 1,400 full-time jobs during the second quarter.
It is also expected that over $1 billion in business will be created for the state in 2020.
