The primary objective of the Second Saudi Tourism Forum is to boost tourism in the Kingdom, providing a space for government entities and the private sector to showcase Saudi Arabia’s tourism destinations and services. Aligned with the Vision 2030 goals, the forum aims to strengthen the Saudi private sector, promote a vibrant society, and create a prosperous economy through diversification and investment, with tourism playing a crucial role.
Established in 2018 under the Ministry of Culture, the Jeddah Historic District Program plays a key role in revitalizing the Historic Jeddah area while preserving its unique heritage. The program focuses on restoring both tangible and intangible cultural heritage, adhering to UNESCO requirements and global standards. Through various projects within the master plan for Historic Jeddah, the program aims to transform the living environment into a dynamic hub for business ventures and cultural projects.
