UAE’s travel and tourism industry to generate over 5,200 new jobs
17 May, 2015
Travel and tourism is the major driving sector of the UAE economy – or more precisely Dubai’s – supporting hundreds of thousands of jobs and strongly contributing towards its GDP. As the emirate aims to attract more tourists and is investing heavily in tourist-attracting ventures, this initiative will help generate more business as well as create new jobs in the country. According to the World Economic Forum’s 2015 Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Index report, the UAE’s travel and tourism industry in 2014 employed around 291,000 people – or 5.3 per cent of the total employment base.
