Tourism is a strategic growth industry in Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia's economic diversification plan. Tourism makes up 3.5 percent of GDP in Saudi Arabia currently, derived mostly from religious visits. However, tourism accounts for 10 percent of GDP globally. Developing the tourism sector represents an enormous growth opportunity and so the government has given the industry its full backing, regarding it as fundamental to the success of Vision 2030.
