WTTC Commends Saudi Arabia

The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) recently congratulated the government of Saudi Arabia for adopting tourism as a key sector to help diversify the economy away from oil. David Scowsill, president, WTTC, remarked that the organisation has been emphasising the importance

of the industry as an alternative income stream to oil exporting countries over the last months as the sector is very resilient, and a great economic and social stimulator for any country’s economy.

“In order to ensure that the increase in tourism investment will lead to the expected growth, we encourage the government to adopt visa policies that welcome all travellers for business and leisure purposes,” he added.
