She added that the exhibition would be jointly organized with the Hospitality Services Company. The exhibition intends to keep the valuable trust it gained from leading hospitality, food industries and hotel equipment companies during previous exhibitions. “In view of the tensed political conditions in various regional countries and with the continuous drop in oil prices, it has become a must to give due care to tourism in order to diversify sources of national income”, she reiterated, noting that the tourism sector would provide 90,000 job opportunities and attract annual investments of up to KD 700 million. Further, Al-Anjeri noted that with the new expansions in Kuwait, the number of hotel rooms are expected to rise to over 10,000 and that restaurants are expected to rise to over 5000 within three years.
