According to the official WAM news agency, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the UAE’s prime minister and the ruler of Dubai, announced following a cabinet meeting in the nation’s capital Abu Dhabi on Sunday that the country’s tourism earnings had surpassed $5 billion in the first half of this year.
Details about Tourism Earnings in the United Arab Emirates Exceeded $5 Billion in the First Half of 2022:
According to Sheikh Mohammed, hotel occupancy has increased by more than 40% compared to 2021 during the coronavirus outbreak, as reported by The New Arab. Twelve million people now stay in hotels annually, and “a significant tourism revival in the approaching winter season” is anticipated.
Since there aren’t many hotels in Qatar, where the World Cup is being held, tourism is anticipated to grow even more during that time. During the World Cup, Dubai will provide daily flights to and from Qatar to accommodate supporters.
According to a tweet from the UAE’s vice president on Sunday, the country’s tourist industry generated 19 billion dirhams ($5.17 billion) in the first half of 2022.
