AMMAN — The conference of the leading network of French independent travel agencies, “Selector 2023” concluded in Amman on Saturday.

The conference, which was organised by Al Thuraya Travel and Tourism, saw the participation of 600 French companies and tourism experts, according to the Jordan Tourism Board (JTB).

The event shed light on Jordan’s landmarks and was a dynamic platform for professional networking and promoting sustainable tourism experience, JTB said.

During the conference, former French president Nicolas Sarkozy praised the strong Jordanian-French relations, highlighting the pivotal role of tourism in both countries and urging efforts to boost the sector's contribution to the Kingdom's income and economic growth.

JTB Director General Abdul Razzaq Arabiyyat noted France’s rank among the most crucial markets for tourism to Jordan, citing the “significant” increase of French tourists visiting Jordan who reached 83,672 in the first 10 months of 2023 compared to 63,605 visitors in the same period of 2022. 

JTB announced plans to launch an e-platform designed to gather insights into the trends and preferences of French tourists both before and during their visits to the Kingdom.
