BTEA’s long term strategy aims at developing and strengthening the tourism sector, which contributes towards Bahrain’s 2030 Economic Vision.

Bahrain, represented by the BTEA, has been selected as member of UNWTO’s executive council for 2018-2021.

This selection is hailed as coming as a result of the BTEA’s efforts towards developing the tourism sector on a local level, as well as the Bahrain’s ability to represent the Middle Eastern region in terms of tourism developments.
