Regional Director of the Middle East at United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Basmah Al-Mayman lauded the vital role Saudi Arabia led in international organizations across fields.
Al-Mayman stressed on the Kingdom’s active qualitative participation on many levels, which includes tourism and development.
According to the Saudi Press Agency, she added that the Kingdom worked towards shifting the UNWTO to a specialized agency of the UN. Promoting Arabic as an official language in the organization is also another milestone.
