The Tourism Ministry on Tuesday announced that it will provide NIS 5 million to support events that draw tourism to the country’s periphery.

“The periphery is one of the main areas to profit from tourism in Israel,” said Tourism Minister Uzi Landau. “Tourism creates job opportunities, tourism traffic and exposes the beautiful tourism sites to travelers. This financial investment comes alongside the fruitful cooperation between the tourism ministry and the local municipalities and is intended to concentrate tourism development efforts in the areas receiving support.”

Events as varied as Yoga festivals, musical events, and sports events will receive ministry funding via their municipality. This year, the Ministry added Haifa as a destination, and set aside NIS 1.8 million for sports events in Eilat.
