Wed, Mar. 7, 2018
BERLIN - 7 March 2018: Minister of Civil Aviation Sherif Fathi said that his Ministry is keen on participating in the International Tourism Bourse (ITB) in Berlin, believing this would contribute to increasing the flow of tourists to Egypt.

"Our presence is important to ease obstacles and discuss with the German side means to boost bilateral cooperation," Fat'hi told MENA correspondent Wednesday.

He put the number of German tourists visiting Egypt at 1.234 million, adding that "we will work to increase that figure by the end of the current year."

Germany is an important trade partner of Egypt, the minister said.

He made it clear that Egypt comes third among trade partners of Germany in the Arab world and Middle East.

According to Fathi, the phrase "airport security" sends negative message about Egyptian airports, insisting highest security levels are applied.

ITB Berlin kicked off here earlier today and should last until March 11.
