                  Tourism is a vital piece of Rhode Island's economy – nearly 1 in 10 Rhode Island jobs are in the tourism industry – so it is crucial to the future of our state that we invest in protecting and promoting our natural and cultural attractions. That's why this week I introduced my plan, Discover Rhode Island. With our unemployment rate more than 2% above the national average, we must invest in and grow the tourism industry to create jobs and expand our economy. Tourism has been central to Providence's turnaround. Recently we were called "The Country's Best Small City.” Tourism can play an equally key role in Rhode Island’s economic recovery by showcasing our natural and cultural assets. By attracting more tourists to the Ocean State, we can create jobs, increase revenue and make Rhode Island an even better place to live.
