Building Economic Sustainability through Tourism Project

As-Salt business-owners and entrepreneurs enhance their skills

14 May 2018
Under the Distinctive Destinations Program, USAID BEST continues to work with the Salt Development Corporation and the As-Salt Municipality to enhance the city’s tourism potential. A series of training sessions were open to residents and entrepreneurs of As-Salt, covering a range of skills useful for running high standard tourism businesses. Three sessions have taken place to date, and the training will continue through June and July. Participants developed their guest communication and food services skills and learned best practices for food safety, facility sanitation and employee hygiene. More than 60 participants attended the three trainings, and around 75 percent of them were women.
