Brief Executive Summary
On behalf of Senator Rand Paul, the Senate Subcommittee on Federal Spending Oversight issued a waste report looking into a federal taxpayer funded program that promotes and aids the Albanian tourist industry. The report looks into how necessary the program is to U.S. interests as well as the current state of the tourist sector in Albania. The subcommittee finds that the current Albanian tourist industry is larger, as a percent of GDP, than the United States, and finds that the program is counterintuitive to the money spent on promoting U.S. tourism.
