Pavlos Geroulanos was received by his Egyptian counterpart Munir Fakhry Abdel Nour on Sunday in Cairo, where they agreed to make an effort for stronger cooperation in tourism between Greece and Egypt.
The two countries aim to work together to attract visitors from rapidly developing tourism markets such as China, India and Latin America. Geroulanos emphasised that tourists from these countries place great emphasis on archaeological tourism and that in this area the two countries could be partners.
Egypt is the third country in the region that Greece is seeking to cooperate with in tourism, after Turkey, and Israel.
To promote this effort, the two ministers decided to organise a tourism-related forum for businesses, hopefully in the very near future.
