As an international organization working to promote strong business and cultural ties between the UK and Washington state, BABC-PNW believes it is important to continue investing in tourism, particularly international tourism, helping to support our Pacific Northwest region and its communities. We recently submitted our letter of support for SB 5251 / HB 1123, which would effectively create a Washington State Tourism Marketing Program.
