< PrevNext > The Golden Age of Travel, Huh? By Oracle director of global sourcing & global process owner Rita Visser / 27 January 2017 Share I know I am not the only one looking to the next few months with a keen eye. People are wondering how our country will change or if it will change at all.From the travel side, I am reading articles about how the new administration will be business friendly, how the stimulus packages will help drive business development, how the new administration will focus on keeping and creating jobs in the U.S., how the president is focused on infrastructure improvements in airports and aviation security.If I believed everything I read, I would think the Golden Age of business travel is upon us. Companies will make more money and thus spend more on travel. Suppliers will benefit from programs that make them profitable. Travelers will be safer than ever before.Then, I remember that I live in a world with other people. People who are set on doing the unspeakable (Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Paris); companies that are going to falter and collapse, meaning people will lose their jobs. So while I look ahead to the next few months, I choose not to look at it with fear or delight. I choose to look at it with an open mind, a watchful eye and a trained ear. 2017 ... the year we all keep going!
