Germany seeks to boost tourism ties with KSA

April 8- Representatives from the German National Tourist Office (GNTO) met with members of the Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCCI) and tourist bodies in a bid to encourage tourist investment exchange between both countries earlier this week.
