This increase, he said, necessitates the presence of skilled Jordanians to work in tourism establishments across the Kingdom, especially hotels, seeing as they employ the largest amount of people in the tourism sector.

Tourism is being revived in the Kingdom, said Qasim, stating that 2022 figures were very promising. In terms of revenue, in 2022, it amounted to about $5.8 billion. As for visitors and tourists coming to the Kingdom, the number exceeded 5 million.

Cultural and recreational events, among others, can help promote tourism momentum and prolong the stay of tourists from abroad, added Qasim. These events can also stimulate domestic tourism, he said.

"Creating, supporting, and boosting events across the country — from north to south — is an important factor in stimulating the tourism movement," he said.
