The year 2018 was very good for the Egyptian tourism sector, the minister added during an interview with Bloomberg.


Egypt’s tourism sector is expected to grow by 30% by the end of 2019, in light of the boom of tourist arrivals to Egypt during the last period, according to the Minister of Tourism Rania Al-Mashat.

The year 2018 was very good for the Egyptian tourism sector, the minister added during an interview with Bloomberg.

Regarding the bankruptcy of Thomas Cook, Al-Mashat said it will not only affect Egypt, but the entire global tourism.
