 The meeting will focus on the growing Arab tourism, assisting the Palestinian tourism industry, training Arab staff, particularly in digital transformation, standardizing medical practices, and advancing the concepts of accessible tourism, innovative tourism, and smart tourism.


During the opening session, Fayez emphasized the Kingdom’s commitment to putting the meeting’s recommendations into practice, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.


The minister stated that Jordan had made notable strides in terms of growth.


Through collaboration with Palestine on a tourism program, the implementation of a national training program for tourism sector employees, reaching out to sector partners and donors to establish a business incubator, and moving forward with a digital tourist project, which develops mobile applications that provide information to tourists, Jordan was able to improve the sector.


Fayes also noted Jordan’s cooperation with the Al-Balqa Applied University, the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation, and the Milan Institute to study the gap between tourism education’s outputs and the labor market’s needs.


Through this study, 10 tourism professions were identified and will be offered in universities, colleges, and institutes, Fayez said.
