The Saudi Tourism Authority (STA) has unveiled a new campaign, called Saudi Summer, to encourage residents to explore the Kingdom this year instead of taking holidays abroad. The Kingdom is planning to open 38 new tourist sites in seven different destinations across the country by 2022 and the sector is expected to provide 260,000 jobs by 2023.
In other news, a public private partnership taking place this week is a concrete example of the UK’s commitment to Saudi Arabia as a strategic partner in its Vision 2030.
