The hospitality sector is growing at an extremely fast pace. The country’s hospitality industry is considered as one of the highly profitable industries, contributing significant amount of foreign exchange to the economy.

Hospitality sector is the largest employer as it is capable of offering employment opportunities to a wide range of job seekers from professional to unskilled workers. The global hotel industry was forecasted to generate 550 billion U.S. dollars in revenue in 2016.
