During his inauguration on Thursday of the Egyptian pavilion at the 2019 TTG Incontri exhibition in the Italian city of Rimini, Badr said that great efforts are being made to raise the number of flights between Egypt and Italy, as well as the re-launch of cruises.
He added that the Egyptian pavilion saw a high turnout from exhibitors and Italian and international tourism federations, which reflects the great passion of Italians for visiting different Egyptian tourist attractions.
