Additionally, the diversity in the country’s tourist destinations has also induced customer interest and confidence.

Relevant sectors also liaised with the ‘World’s Coolest Winter’ campaign, which was launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
