• The development of this tourism pillar in the Arabian peninsula will be especially beneficial to the hospitality industry which is directly linked to tourism. 
  • Investment opportunities are being created for developers in new destinations, the performance of hotels in proximity to heritage sites is expected to remain strong, and further employment opportunities for locals are to be generated as this sector develops. 
  • It is for these reasons and for the provision of a more diversified tourism offering that we expect a continued and growing focus on the cultural and heritage tourism sector across the region.
