Building Economic Sustainability through Tourism Project

January 2019

USAID BEST reflects on its successes in its 2018 year in review and prepares for many more this year. This month, Pathways to Professionalism Level 2 graduates were celebrated for successful completion of their training. USAID BEST is working to support the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities in improving their institutional performance and address weaknesses through the customization and delivery of training courses. Through ongoing upgrades, Iskandarani Café and Restaurant is able to showcase the authentic As-Salt heritage through its food and events.  In addition, an awareness campaign has begun to draw attention to the impact of tourism in As-Salt communities.
