Arabs are responsible for around 30 percent of the $100 billion spent on medical tourism across the world each year, said the president of the Arab Tourism Organization.

Bandar Al-Fihaid said that the medical tourism market is expected to reach more than $200 billion over the next 10 years, Saudi Press Agency reported.

He explained that the increase in revenues signals the importance of developing these sectors in the Arab region and benefits from its impacts on the economy and investment.

Al-Fihaid cited examples of Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Tunisia which have put long-term plans to lay the foundations for medical and recovery tourism.
