Heritage Tourism and the Federal Government: Summit IIReport of Proceedings
Heritage tourism promotes the preservation of communities' historic resources, educates tourists and local residents about America's historic and cultural heritage, and results in substantial benefits for local economies.
In conjunction with its May 9, 2003, quarterly meeting, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation hosted a second summit meeting of Federal agencies to discuss cultural heritage tourism. As was apparent at the first summit meeting in November 2002, many Federal agencies are already supporting heritage tourism in various ways through their missions and programs.
In light of the Administration's recent signing of Executive Order 13287, "Preserve America," and the launch of the Preserve America initiative, this meeting provided an opportunity to hear about current efforts in support of Preserve America's goals and to begin discussing ways to improve the coordination and consistency of such efforts.
