The launch of the system, in tandem with the General Administration of Licensing, is in order to ease the growth in the tourism sector and facilitate the fast-tracking of licensing. It will raise the quality of tourism in the Kingdom, in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 plan to implement the adoption of electronic advancements. Investors can visit the TLG.scth.gov.sa online portal dedicated to issuing licenses for the list of activities covered by the system, including accommodation booking and trip organization. This comes in the context of the SCTH’s efforts aiming to create an attractive environment for investment in the tourism sector in Saudi Arabia, and keep pace with the increasing demand for tourism in the Kingdom after the launch of the new tourist visa for visitors from all over the world. This is all in line with Riyadh’s goal to make tourism a sustainable economic sector, capable of competing internationally, that contributes to supporting the economy.   Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Saudi Arabiasaudi tourism As Saudi tourism becomes more accessible, tour guides share their pride in assisting pilgrimsOne million people needed in Saudi tourism workforce to achieve Vision 2030 goal, says Red Sea Development Co.

Saudi Electricity Company denies price increase rumors

Author: Mon, 2020-02-24 22:28 JEDDAH: The Saudi Electricity Company has denied an increase of tariff readings and prices after rumors circulated about a hike. The rumors claimed that electricity pricing was increasing from SR0.11/kWh ($0.029/kWh) to SR0.33/kWh. People flooded the company’s Twitter feed with questions about the accuracy of the rumors. “What is being reported about an increase in tariffs and service prices is not true,” the company said in a statement. “These rumors have no basis,” a Saudi Electricity Company representative told Arab News. “The Saudi Electricity Company only strives to deliver the best services to our customers. That includes making sure they get enough power and that it reaches them on time.” Such rumors were mostly started by anonymous accounts, he added.
