Israel appoints new minister of tourism

Published on : Thursday, May 21, 2020

Asaf Zamir will lead as the new minister of tourism for Israel and succeed  Yariv Levin in the role.

Zamir is a  member of the Blue & White Party and served as deputy mayor of Tel Aviv, under Ron Huldai, from 2013 to 2018, and at the age of 28, became the youngest deputy mayor in the history of the city.

Zamir was instrumental in the re-branding of Tel Aviv and said that becoming minister of tourism has been a life-long ambition and he had  worked incredibly hard to reach this office.

He said that Israel is an incredible destination for tourism, and everyone who comes here falls in love with our country and the many opportunities it offers. A great challenge lies ahead to restore Israel’s tourism industry to its previous success but there are plans in place to rebuild the industry, and in order to do so, they will get businesses back on track, starting with domestic tourism.

 For the continued efforts he thanked everyone and was looking to the work ahead to bolster the industry and bring tourists back to Israel once again.
