  • Soundbite (Mazin Al Farrayeh – Jordanian Minister of Interior):
    “Medical tourism in Jordan is very important for the country’s economy and tourism sector. The Ministry of Interior in Jordan plays a distinguished role in securing protection and entry for tourists visiting for treatment, as it has taken many measures to facilitate entry to the Kingdom. The number of visitors increased in 2022 to 1.8 million, due to the outstanding role of the Ministry of Interior in relation to entry measures.”
  • Soundbite (Haifa Abu Ghazaleh – Assistant Secretary General of the League of Arab state):
    “It is very important for Jordan to be the host country for this forum, to promote tourist places in the Kingdom. Jordan has been well-known for its medical tourism for many years.”

    “Holding this forum after recovering from the pandemic has great importance in revitalizing Arab and regional tourism.”
  • Soundbite (Jamal Al-Adwani – Representative of State of Kuwait in the forum):

  • Soundbite (Nayef Al-Fayez – Jordanian Minister of Tourism):
    “Medical tourism in Jordan represents a special aspect in the tourism sector and the economic vision the government has for the country. It is an essential element that will play a major role in the next 10 years.”
