AMMAN — The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities on Tuesday published the results of its first Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) at a conference titled, “Informed Planning for the Future”.

The conference brought together experts in tourism statistics from Jordan and the region, according to a statement from the USAID-Jordan Tourism Development Project (Siyaha).

Jordan’s first TSA was developed through joint efforts between the tourism ministry, the Department of Statistics and the Jordan Tourism Board with support from Siyaha, the statement said.

“The Tourism Satellite Account has emerged over the last 15 years to become the most recognised methodology for measuring the value of tourism to an economy,” the statement quoted USAID Jordan Mission Director Beth Paige, as saying at the conference.
