Description of the video:
Welcome to the seventh episode of MALN Opinion+! We are excited to have a weekly program dedicated to discussing the concerns and opinions of Massachusetts’s Latino community.
This week we spoke with Keiko Matsudo Orrall, executive director of the Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism (MOTT), about the office’s ongoing and future initiatives, along with the pandemic’s effects on MOTT and tourism within the state.
Executive Director Orrall explained that the Office of Travel & Tourism has been focused on raising support for local businesses throughout the ongoing pandemic, resulting in its new initiative My Local MA; Orrall explained that the idea is to encourage Massachusetts residents to—safely—rediscover what’s right there in their backyards.
