Egypt’s tourism minister is seeking to turn two Sinai Peninsula into tourist regions, according to a report.
Hoping to boost Egypt’s tourism income, Egyptian Tourism Minister Zoheir Garranah has expressed concern about Taba and Nuweiba, two Sinai Peninsula tourist regions with potentially high levels of tourism levels.
The Egyptian Tourism Federation (ETF) said it has received permission from Minister Garrahah “full responsibility for compiling a full strategic market planning report in order to turn Taba and Nuweiba into economic or investment regions. The two regions are expected to boost the nation's tourism income.
Following the directive from Egyptian tourism minister, ETF chairman Ahmed El-Nahas, board member Alaa Hafez, director general Ayman Altaranissi, and chairman's executive consultant Ahmed Yousri, met with Dr. Samir Makari, economic consultant to the ETF, to highlight main focal points in order to post the strategic market planning report within the coming weeks.
According to the ETF, Makari had compiled a similar such economic report in 2005. “Highly successful, it was presented to the General Authority for Investment and Free Zones (GAFI), headed by Investment Minister Dr Mahmoud Mohieldin,” ETF said.
