Thai delegation visits Ministry of Tourism

A delegation from the National Defense College of Thailand (NDC) on Monday visited the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities to learn about Jordan’s diverse and unique tourism sites.

Secretary-General of the Ministry, Imad Hijazin, told the 34-strong delegation that Jordan’s tourist offering is diverse and features religious, cultural, therapeutic, and adventure tourism.

He also highlighted the Kingdom’s National Tourism Strategy of 2021-2025, which focuses on five main aspects: tourism product development, human resources, marketing, heritage management and protection, and reforms.

“Tourism is one of the most important sectors supporting the national economy, and it is a major contributor to providing job opportunities for Jordanians,” he said, noting that pre-pandemic tourism revenue in 2019 was JD4.1 billion, or more than 13% of GDP, with about 5.3 million visitors.

Major General Saksit Saengchanin, Director of the NDC’s Office of Security Sciences, said the visit is an opportunity to learn about Jordan’s expertise in tourism promotion and preservation, particularly of World Heritage sites.
