The database and types of data proposed by the Arab National Network:
“The database can be defined as” an integrated set of files containing logically linked data “, recorded in a way that reduces replication and makes it easier to process.
 The database we will mention includes a set of files in the form of data related to the development of Arab tourism investment agencies:
1- Tourism investment opportunities available in all Arab countries at the level of tourist activity branches (hotels, resorts, tourist cities), food and beverage establishments, travel and tourism companies, tourist, land, sea and air transport establishments, and marketing promoters to define the tourist product in each Arab country. Etc.).

10 Basic database showing the contribution of countries to the growth rate of Arab tourism, for example:
A) Hotels, and family rooms and their distribution geographically and locally according to their classification.
(B) The specialized and non-specialized labor force in the tourism sector and its geographical and “local” distribution, according to the level of skills and the sources of access to them (universities, institutes, tourism and tourism training centers).
(C) Availability of infrastructure in the region or tourist area for which investment is to be developed (communications, transport, water, electricity, sewage and other facilities).
(D) The potential of local financing for tourism projects (specialized banks, commercial banks, groups of government or private investment companies and others).
All Arab tourism departments should contribute to the proposed network to update their databases continuously and analyze them by developing their information systems in the official tourist services of each country and at the level of the units operating in the tourism sector. This requires the availability of information banks at all levels, A national tourism information system is fed and linked to the proposed Arab network and its possible link to the international Internet network to benefit from its services in this field, such as some industrial countries that rely on advanced national information agencies, for example “Western European countries have (20 000) information banks linked through national networks of information in these countries.
