Tourist arrivals to Egypt grew by 40% in 2018

Tourist arrivals in Egypt increased 40% in 2018, reaching around 11.6 mn tourists, up from 8.3 mn last year, Egyptian Tourism Federation head Hossam El Shaer said, according to Al Mal. The growth in tourist arrivals may put a strain on the sector’s transport capabilities if businesses fail to invest in expanding their bus fleets, he said, according to Ahram. El Shaer called for the removal of import duties on buses for tourism purposes.
