CAIRO - 14 July 2019: Chairman of the German - Arab Chamber of Industry and Commerce Emad Ghaly stated on Saturday that Germans represent one third of tourists to Egypt, and that the tourism organizations in both countries are working to boost the number of German tourists to 2 million.
In the same context, Ghaly stressed the necessity to expand training programs targeting workers in the tourism sector in Egypt.
Ghaly’s statements came during the Eighth Euro Mediterranean Tourism Forum (MEDITOUR) that took place in Alexandria. That forum is held every two years in a Mediterranean city by the Association of the Mediterranean Chambers of Commerce and Industry (ASCAME) in collaboration with a local chamber of commerce.
This edition of the forum was organized by the Alexandria Business Association (ABA). The forum is also supported by EBSOMED, which is a project funded by the EU to enhance organizations backing businesses.
The forum was attended by 300 tourism investors from Egypt and the Mediterranean countries, ambassadors and consuls, and representatives of different international organizations concerned with the sector.
