Saudi ArabiaWith religious tourism being the main tourism drive, Saudi Arabia now plans to focus on business and boost business travel to propel tourism industry further.


“Looking forward, we believe that business travel should prove another strong growth area, especially given Saudi Arabia’s status as the world’s largest oil exporter,” Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities (SCTA) reported.


Saudi Arabia will remain reliant on Middle Eastern and Asian nations for the bulk of its inbound tourism flows for the remainder of the forecast period.


Saudi Arabia tourism already looks promising as tourist arrivals to the country has been projected to increase by seven percent in 2013, with an additional 38.6 percent increase over the 2013-2017 period, BMI said in Saudi Arabia Tourism Report Q3 2013.
