Ministry of Tourism Yemen
I represent and I am an adviser for the Ministry of Tourism in Yemen
Yemen Tourism Promotion Board (YTPB):
Yemen Tourism Promotion Board (YTPB) was established in 1999, as a result of a study conducted by the European commission focused on ways to develop tourism in Yemen. The study stated that Yemen was very rich in terms of nature and culture tourism. However, the country was not investing and promoting its tourism resources efficiently to attract tourists.
The study concluded that it was very important to establish a board to promote tourism in Yemen. It recommended that the board should include all tourism-related agencies in both public and private sectors and adopt the function system of the private sector in order to evade the bureaucracy of the public sector.
