GBTA Government Relations: The Voice of the Business Travel Industry

About GBTA Government Relations

GBTA advocates across the globe for policies that better the business travel industry. Promoting passenger facilitation, a healthy infrastructure and a tax and fee system that benefits rather than burdens the traveler are key items for travel buyers and the travelers they manage.

Developing and advocating for a changing industry is at the forefront of GBTA’s actions. Items such as the Rules of the Road and passage of infrastructure and passenger facilitation are the reason why GBTA is the voice of the global business travel industry.
