Egypt: Cooperation Protocol to Develop Technological Infrastructure of Tourism Ministry Signed

Egypt's Communications and Information Ministry signed on Wednesday 20/2/2013 a cooperation protocol to develop the technological infrastructure of the Tourism Ministry to promote this vital sector, once a good source of Egypt's national income. Prime Minister Hisham Qandil attended the signing ceremony.

The protocol aims at increasing the number of tourists to Egypt through developing the portals of the Tourism Ministry, the Tourism Promotion Authority and other tourism-related bodies so that they would be tourist-friendly.

The protocol includes setting up websites of some tourist destinations in Egypt, honing human resources in the tourism domain and launching a channel featuring tourism-magnet areas in Egypt.
