SCTA Will Develop Three Year Plan To Promote Tourism

Prince Sultan bin Salman said the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities (SCTA) will develop a comprehensive three year plan to develop the tourism sector.  Prince Sultan bin Salman is Chairman of the SCTA.  The plan will involve decentralizing the Kingdom’s tourism sector and giving regional and local communities major roles.    The Prince spoke about the plan while addressing media following participation in a United Nations World Tourism Organization in Astana, Kazakh.

The Prince said that most people accept tourism in the Kingdom and it is consistent with religious and social values while also meeting security and environmental demands.  He expects tourism to be one of the Kingdom’s biggest revenue generators, providing many job opportunities.  The government is addressing the lack of tourist attractions and facilities on the Kingdom’s coastal fronts.
