San Diego officials hope to attract more foreign travelers

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - City officials are planning to focus San Diego's tourism industry on international travelers this year.

Tourism is the the third largest sector in San Diego's economy, and officials hope to attract tourism dollars from abroad, particularly from China. The San Diego Tourism Authority says a new one-hour documentary about Amerca's Finest City called "World's Smart Cities: San Diego" will help that goal.

"It airs in 61 countries, five different one-hour shows in 61 countries, over 300 million households. It's unbelievable. We could never pay for this," San Diego Tourism Authority President and CEO Joe Terzi said.

San Diego is the only U.S. city featured in the new National Geographic Channel documentary series.
