International tourist arrivals too increased by 41 million in all destinations from January and September. International tourism has increased by 5% above the prediction of UNWTO giving a boost to the world economy.
In Sudan and other countries there are no statistics as such given for this wealthy resource and extensive efforts are being made for marketing tourism and improve the economy by reaping the fortunes that tourism will bring to them.
Sudan tourism potential, in fact is comprised of rich multiple varieties of Cultures, Customs, Traditions, Historic monuments, Religions, Regions and Climates. Promoting and well marketing of these capabilities is the only way that for sure would attract annually more local and foreign Tourists and yield a wealth that would contribute in improving the economy of the Sudan.
Keeping the growing prospects of tourism in mind the Sudanese Ministry of Tourism, is all set to engage in opportunities of investment in the tourism sector. The ministry is taking special efforts in attracting and motivating foreign and local investors and the tourism sector is reforming its overall laws to make the sector friendlier to the investors.
