As per the report, the rapid growth of the Egyptian tourism industry in future will be driven by strong government efforts.

Apart from the government initiatives, rising tourism sponsoring campaigns, such as “Egypt… the Incomparable” and “The Gift of the Sun”, geographical location, rising FDI, and increasing personal disposable income, coupled with favorable age group will add substantially to the future growth of the Egypt’s tourism industry.
