Cairo, 22 Muharram 1436/4 November 2015 (MINA) – Secretary General of the Arab League Nabil Elaraby on Monday hailed the decision of the United Arab Emirates’ Cabinet to open an office for the Arab Tourism Organization in the Gulf state, Emirates News Agency (WAM) reported.
This came during Elaraby’s meeting with chairman of the Arab Tourism Organization Dr Bandar bin Fahad, during which they discussed ways to fend off the impact of the crises hitting the Arab region on tourism in the Arab states, IINA News quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
Following the meeting, Bin Fahad noted that Arab countries have sustained losses of more than $30 billion as a result of the current developments in this region.
“We are discussing ways to reinvigorate inter-Arab tourism, as any incident, however small, prompts a large number of non-Arab countries to issue advisories to their citizens against travel to the Arab region,” Bin Fahad added.(T/R05/R03)
