Tourism Minister: Egypt is an important tourist destination

Saturday، 12 March 2016 - 02:24 PM

The crash of the Russian plane over North Sinai last year had
badly affected the tourism movement in Egypt and driven away four million
tourists in a moment, Tourism Minister Hisham Zaazou said on Thursday
10/03/2016.

"The incident posed major security, political and tourist
challenges in Egypt," Zaazou told a press conference in Berlin. Millions
of Egyptians are working in full safety and security across the country, the
minister said.

However, Zaazou added, the international media conveys a gloomy
picture about the situation in Egypt. "Egypt is an important tourist
destination," Minister Zaazou stressed. Egypt revised all measures of
securing its airports, Zaazou said.

The remarks were made on the sidelines of his participation in Berlin Tourism
Bourse.
