He said Asir is ready to host various GCC conferences and events to realize Prince Faisal's dream of making the region a center for sustainable tourism.
"A spate of tourism related projects such as hostels, motels, recreation centers, and hospitals can be implemented in the region," he said.
Khalil Al-Khinji, president of the Federation of GCC Chambers, said GCC businessmen and businesswomen were happy to visit the region to look for investment opportunities.

He urged GCC governments to extend facilities to investors not only to boost their economies but also to create more jobs for their citizens.
Abdul Rahman Naqi, secretary-general of the federation, emphasized the significance of the federation's meeting and thanked Abha Chamber for hosting the event.
