Manama, Nov. 14 (BNA): Industry, Commerce and Tourism Minister, Zayed bin Rashid Al-Zayani, has stressed that investments in the hospitality sector in the Kingdom of Bahrain will increase the capacity by about 4,000 rooms until 2020.

The minister praised the hotel classification system, which has been in force since 2015, affirming that the services delivered by hotels in accordance with their classification will continue unchanged.

Al-Zayani added that Bahrain will continue developing the tourism and hospitality sectors, as well as sub-sectors by encouraging investments in them, and launching innovative models of hotel investment, noting that the kingdom has succeeded in attracting tourism investments to build 15 5-star and 4-star hotels, and beach resorts to be completed within the next five years.

He pointed out that the Kingdom has a package of mega development projects worth more than US $ 32 billion.

These projects, some of which will contribute to revitalising the tourism sector, include the construction of a second bridge linking Bahrain and Saudi Arabia through the GCC Railway Network, and the expansion of the Bahrain International Airport, which is expected to raise the airport's capacity by 65 percent to reach 14 million passengers annually.
