El Sisi’s sideline meetings during G20 summit dominates Egypt’s airwaves

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi’s sideline meetings during the G20 summit in Japan were in the limelight on the airwaves yesterday. El Sisi’s talks with Toyota Tshusho head Ichiro Kashitani was a highlight on Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime: 1:13). Al Hayah Al Youm’s Lobna Assal also took note of a report by the State’s Information Service (SIS) on El Sisi’s other “high-level meetings” (watch, runtime: 1:53). We have the full story in Diplomacy + Foreign Trade, below.

Also earning some attention last night was a Travel Trade Gazette (TTG) article about tourism in Hurghada, which the magazine said is Italian tourists’ favorite destination this summer. The trend in demand remains stable with a marked tendency for travelers to book early for the Red Sea town (watch, runtime: 2:39).
