OVER 400 CONVENTION & VISITOR BUREAUS WORLDWIDE ENDORSE NAFTA

 CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- A resolution urging Congress to pass the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has been adopted by the International Association of Convention & Visitor Bureaus (IACVB). The resolution was authorized by the board of directors at its quarterly board meeting, Oct. 1, 1993, Pittsburgh.
 IACVB's resolution notes that "NAFTA is consistent with the basic philosophical and business principles of the (tourism/convention) industry" and "it is incumbent on the travel industry to continually champion free markets, free exchange of ideas, free mobility of capital and the freedom to travel."
 The resolution further states that passage of NAFTA will inevitably lead to more travel in North America. Noting that NAFTA will create the largest free market in the world, IACVB President Richard J. Newman said, "Business and personal travel are highly correlated with Gross Domestic Product, and a growing economy is a decisive factor in stimulating business travel to serve existing customers and expand markets."
 IACVB was founded in 1914 to promote sound professional practices in travel marketing and in the solicitation and servicing of meetings, conventions and visitors. The association has more than 400 members in 25 countries.
