Saudi Arabia looks to come as an A-rated country tourism and entertainment

Published on : Tuesday, February 13, 2018

The Tourism Department of Saudi Arabia aims to be the A rated tourism destination for entertainment.



The Saudi General Entertainment Authority CEO said that Saudi Arabia needs to top A -rated destination.



Faisal Bafarat made the remarks at the Global Dialogues for Happiness that his country plans not only to re-open cinemas after a 39-year hiatus but also to put the conservative Arab oil state on the global map for festivals, sports events and family entertainment. The event came ahead of the World Government Summit 2018.



Bafarat said the year 2018 will mark a game changer in relation to cultural, entertainment and tourist attractions. It is a plan which he said is in line with the government’s Saudi Vision 2030 master plan.



The Vision 2030 aims to convert the Saudi kingdom into a diversified economy which is nearly independent of oil revenues, which currently account for 87 percent of the national budget.



He also said that the increase in Saudi entertainment events will boost job opportunities for both Saudi men and women.



Earlier last month, the the King Abdullah Sports City stadium in Jeddah welcomed women for the first time in designated family sections. In October last year, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, considered the mastermind of Vision 2030, said at the Future Investment Summit in Riyadh that he want to return his country to a “moderate Islam” which was present in the kingdom before 1979.
