They said the sector is seeking to increase the number of touristic projects to target about 1.6 million tourists this year. The sources explained that four authorities are participating in the project for developing and promoting national tourism especially with the fall in oil prices.
The need for paying special attention to the tourism sector as a source of income has been understood. The project is expected to contribute in increasing the percentage of nonoil revenues to 14.5 percent of the GDP of 2017.
