Yes Iraq: Special

Among the most pressing questions about what is the alternative that can achieve financial revenues for Iraq away from oil, tourism always presents itself as a strong alternative to oil in Iraq, because this country contains various and different tourist elements and can attract different types of people from different Nationalities and cultures, as it contains religious and recreational tourism elements, landscapes, historical places and ancient civilizations.
Not only has the deterioration of the tourism sector in Iraq, its neglect and poor exploitation by the state, weakened the global turnout of tourists to Iraq compared to the tourist places it contains, but this neglect contributed to the departure of Iraqis for tourism in other countries, where it is estimated that more than 100 million dollars The Iraqis spent it outside Iraq in just 10 days.
The economic researcher, Manar Al-Obaidi, reviewed the amount of money that came out of Iraq through tourists during the first 10 days that preceded Eid Al-Adha, while noting that this clearly indicates that tourism is the clearest alternative to oil if it is used well.
Al-Obaidi said that "more than 500 flights during the first days of the month of Dhul-Hijjah until Eid, more than 100,000 Iraqi tourists left Iraq during this period (excluding pilgrims)," noting that "the rate of exchange per tourist, including transportation and housing fees, is more than 1,000." dollars, bringing the total amount of money spent during the ten days on travel to the limits of 100 million dollars, all of which went to foreign countries.”
He explained that "the reasons for travel in order of importance are: 1- Temperatures, 2- Entertainment," noting that "it would have been more useful for the Tourism Authority, in cooperation with the Ministry of Transport, to conduct a clear questionnaire survey to know the destinations of Iraqi travelers and the amounts that will be spent and the reasons for travel more accurately and that The Ministry of Planning is working with the Tourism Authority and the Ministry of Transport to analyze this data and turn it into great investment opportunities for various regions inside Iraq.”
And he indicated that “the exit of more than 100 million dollars within ten days as a minimum at least is an indication of many factors,” noting that “the role of the Tourism Authority is to work on analyzing these data, who are the traveling age groups, the cognitive and cultural division, and analyzing them accurately, and finding the local areas from which It is possible to accommodate the desires of tourists instead of them going outside Iraq.”
He explained that "if the number of tourists outside Iraq is more than 100,000 during the Eid period, this means that there is an opportunity for the presence of more than one million internal tourists," noting that "this huge amount is a great opportunity to find internal Iraqi tourist areas that take into account the needs of tourists of various orientations and exploit The desert, oases, and mountainous places found in various parts of Iraq.”
He considered that "the real and quick alternative to oil is domestic and foreign tourism, because Iraq possesses the ingredients to make it a first-class tourist country and its ability to provide hundreds of thousands of job opportunities in a quick record time."
 
With a quick review of a report by the Central Bureau of Statistics, Iraq has already received 3 million tourists in 2019, most of whom came for religious tourism. Spend per tourist only $50.
In 2015, tourism revenues in Iraq recorded more than 300 million dollars, or about 417 billion dinars, divided into 10 billion dinars as government revenues, 362 billion dinars in the private sector and 45 billion dinars in a mixed sector.
 
For his part, the economic expert, Omar Hisham, says that the Iraqi government does not benefit from religious tourism, but rather that the private sector is the largest beneficiary of it, noting that “the law does not impose taxes on the religious tourism sector in Iraq, so the Iraqi government does not benefit from it.” Tourism, especially religious tourism, which ranks first in Iraq.
 
He shows that “the government loses a lot of money. This tourism negatively affects the Iraqi economy, because of the money that is spent to take security measures, provide medical supplies and allocate transportation for visitors, especially in the cities of Karbala and Najaf, while the money collected from tourists does not flow into State Treasury".
 
If we want tourism to enter at least a quarter of what the state budget needs, i.e. about $20 billion, and at the current spending rate, which does not exceed $50, or $100 at best for each tourist, this means that 200 million tourists must visit Iraq annually, and this is impossible to happen.
However, if the state pays attention to tourism and attracts at least 10 million tourists annually between religious and heritage tourism, landscapes and archaeological sites, and motivates tourists to spend at least 1,000 dollars, this will bring Iraq 10 billion dollars annually, which is enough to fill about 13% of Iraq’s budget, which It is about $80 billion annually.
