Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour said, Monday, his government took a host of measures and decisions aimed at backing tourism sector and enable it to overcome the repercussions stemmed from regional situation on this sector.

Ensour made remarks as he visited Jordan Tourism Board, where he met with its board of directors and urged its members to put in place scientific studies related to key challenges facing the tourism sector, voicing his government's desire to take more procedures to promote this pivotal sector since it creates job opportunities for Jordanians.

Jordan has a lot of Islamic and Christian tourism, archaeological and religious sites, Ensour said, adding that the board should play its role in terms of promoting and marketing medical tourism since the good reputation Jordan enjoys in this regard.
