1-Jun-2011 11:06 AM

Saudi Arabia's Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry urged travel and tourism agencies not to promote travel to countries blacklisted by Saudi authorities (Arab News/TradeArabia News Service, 31-May-2011). The chamber has already distributed a circular in this respect, which was issued by the Council of Saudi Chambers of Commerce and Industry on the instructions of the Interior Ministry, it said. Specifically, “non-abidance of the travel ban on Thailand by these agencies would be considered a violation of the law and those who promote travel to these banned countries would be questioned by authorities,” the chamber reportedly said.
