Egypt to hit 9 million tourists

The number of tourists visiting Egypt during this year till the end of December are expected to be around nine million. Statistics show that Egypt managed to increase tourists by 4.4 per cent from January 2006 to the end of November.

Meanwhile, there happened a 4 per cent increase in the number of tourist nights during the same period. This raised tourist revenues to $7 billion, according to Minister of Tourism Zoheir Garranah. Garranah added that Egypt is equipped to attract foreign investments to its tourism sector. The Minister of Tourism said that Egypt's remarkable geographic location is one of the factors that help attract foreign investments. "Egypt is also a huge market," he said. "Added to this is the increasing demand by Arabs to travel to it." Referring to the political and constitutional reforms Egypt initiated during the last two years, Garranah said that Egypt was a remarkable tourist destination. He added that in light of the five-year plan that started in 2006 and to end in 2011, around 15.000 hotel rooms would be established annually to be able to house the 14 million tourists who are expected to visit Egypt by 2011. He went on to say that the Ministry of Tourism has established a website containing all tourist information about Egypt in eight languages. "Around two million people have logged into this website from January 2006 until now," said Minister Garranah.
