WTTC and Saudi Commission for Tourism Partner


The World Travel & Tourism Council [WTTC], the global body that represents the private sector of the Travel & Tourism industry, has announced a partnership with the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage to make Saudi Arabia a top five inbound destination, with 100 million international and domestic visits, by 2030.

The strategic partnership will harness the power and expertise of WTTC’s global membership, world class events and 30 years experience in research and strategic policy work to support Saudi Arabia’s ambitious goals and Vision 2030 plan.

According to WTTC’s annual economic impact research data, in 2018 Travel & Tourism directly accounted for three percent of Saudi Arabia’s GDP and supported 0.6 million jobs (five percent of employment).

Saudi Arabia, with a thriving religious tourism sector, is already the largest travel and tourism economy in the Middle East.
