Tourism Minister Haim Katz arrived today (Tuesday) in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia as part of the United Nations Tourism Organization (UNWTO) conference. This is the first Israeli minister to head an official delegation to the Kingdom.

Katz is expected to stay in the city for about two days as part of the celebration of International Tourism Day and, among other things, will take part in professional events and discussions as well as attend meetings with his counterparts from the Middle East countries.

"Tourism has the potential to bring hearts together"

Minister Katz's office stated: "Tourism is a bridge between nations. Partnership in tourism issues has the potential to bring hearts together and economic prosperity. I will work to create collaborations to promote tourism and Israel's foreign relations."

It was also reported that in the past year Israel strengthened its position in the United Nations Tourism Organization and was elected for the first time to an official position in the organization, and leads a task force to shape the organization's global tourism concept, alongside Spain.
