BMI View: Saudi Arabia's tourism industry presents significant growth potential. The market has long beenbased upon the enormous number of religious pilgrims that visit each year and extensive transport andaccommodation infrastructure has been built up to support this huge inbound arrivals market. Outside ofthis sector there has been limited development, however the government is reportedly committed toexpanding tourism under economic diversification plans which could see Saudi Arabia opened up to abroader range of leisure tourism visitors, in turn stimulating investment in the hotel sector and othersupporting leisure and retail infrastructure. This growth potential is heavily dependent upon security, bothwithin Saudi Arabia and throughout the unstable Middle Eastern region.Key Updates And Forecasts
