Oman Ministry of Tourism hosts 19th Ministerial Meeting for Arab Tourism
During the two-day event, tourism ministers, undersecretaries and VIP dignitaries came together along with representatives from the World Tourism Organization to discuss topics and developments in the sector.
“This event will focus on strengthening the relations between the Arab countries and give a boost to the tourism sector,” Minister of Tourism Ahmed Al Mahrizi said. “Such efforts will go a long way in bringing more tourists into the Arab countries, not just from all over the world but even within the various countries in the region.”
Al Mahrizi noted that the event would examine the challenges face by the tourism sector.
“We will also look into the challenges that hinder the process of making tourism a sustainable sector as it is one of the key pillars of our economy,” he said. “A booming tourism can contribute significantly to the GDP and create job opportunities as outlined in the 2040 Tourism Strategy.”
