The number of German tourists visiting Egypt during January-September 2017 has recorded 800,000 and is expected to hit a million by the end of the year, chairman of the Tourism Promotion Authority Hisham el Demeiry said on Saturday 21/10/2017.
This number is larger than that of last year and is close to the number of German tourists who visited Egypt during the peak year of 2010, he added.
Demeiry made the remarks on the sidelines of the inauguration of a workshop, set to run through Tuesday, involving 50 German tour operators in addition to German magazine “touristik aktuell” that is specialized in tourism.
The inauguration was attended by South Sinai Governor Khaled Fouda, who welcomed German tour organizers to Sharm el Sheikh, which he said is a city of security, peace and good weather.
The governor also pointed to the World Youth Forum that will be held in November in Sharm el Sheikh, with about 3,000 youths from all over the world participating.
