CAIRO – 17 September 2020: Egypt’s Cabinet approved holding a temporary exhibition of antiquities at the Ithraa Museum in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. The exhibition will be held from November 2020 to November 2022, and that includes preparation periods, packaging, transportation and shipping. The exhibition will include 84 artifacts from the collection of Islamic art in Cairo.

 

On September 17, Egypt’s Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly chaired the weekly Cabinet meeting to follow up on a number of different files.

 

Also, the Cabinet approved a draft law to establish the Egyptian portal for Umrah and to allow tourism companies to carry out the Umrah trips.

 

The draft law aims to keep pace with the technological and technical development in automating services as one of the axes of the structural reform program launched to develop the tourism sector. 

 

This is in addition to enabling the Ministry of Tourism to implement its obligations to provide the best services for pilgrims and protect them from brokers and middlemen. This law also aims to protect the Egyptian economy and national security, and eliminate many negative practices.
