The Philippine government announced on Sunday that it will collaborate with Saudi Arabia to grow the travel and tourism sectors in both nations. Since the nation’s reopening to fully immunized foreign visitors in February, more than 9,400 Saudi tourists have travelled there. According to information from the Philippine and Saudia Department of Tourism, Saudi Arabia was the main Middle Eastern supplier of visitors prior to the pandemic.
In a statement released on Sunday, the tourist department said that “the two countries agreed on formalizing their collaboration with Saudi Arabia.”
The Philippine and Saudia will “bring hospitality and human capital development to the Kingdom’s tourism frontline,” while the Kingdom will support the Philippines with Arabic-speaking tour guides, more direct flights, and the growth of halal tourism.
