Speaking earlier this week on the sidelines of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) Ministerial Forum on Intra-Arab Tourism, His Excellency Helal Saeed Almarri, Director General of Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism), highlighted the importance of the two regions to Dubai’s tourism economy, and outlined key reasons why they remain central to Dubai’s plans for increasing overall visitor numbers.
