Tourism

Saudi Arabia Tourism

Recognising the important role of tourism in achieving the wider goals of development in Saudi Arabia, including job creation and increased economic diversity, considerable efforts are being made to expand the industry. A new Umrah Plus visa allowing for longer stays after religious pilgrimages has been introduced and, in combination with a focus on expanding and rehabilitating heritage and historic sites, this should help to boost visitor spending. PPPs are targeted as the preferred method for boosting private sector involvement in the sector. This chapter contains an interview with Prince Sultan bin Salman bin Abdulaziz 
Al Saud, Chairman and President, Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities.
