Egypt’ Ministry of Tourism bags the World Travel Market’s 2019 Global Leaders Award

Published on : Friday, November 8, 2019

Egypt’ Ministry of Tourism has bagged the World Travel Market’s 2019 Global Leaders Award for “Outstanding Contribution to the Industry”.

 

This prestigious award honors the ministry’s contributions towards the global travel and tourism industry in the past 24 months.

 

“The award represents another year of strong growth for#Egypt’s tourism sector reinforcing its role as a driver of economic growth and job creation,” said the ministry statement.

 

The Ministry’s previously launched Egypt—Tourism Reform Program (E—TRP) aims to appoint at least one citizen from every household in the tourism sector, either directly or indirectly.

 

Tourism in Egypt plays a vital role in augmenting the economy, generating 10 percent of the GDP and providing one out of 10 jobs across the world.

 

“Since I took office in Jan 2018, we have been working relentlessly with global partners for development such as the UNWTO, WTTC, WTO and ITC to create awareness on the importance of tourism, strengthening and realizing the potential of Egypt’s tourism, and maximizing contribution of the sector on Egypt’s economic welfare,” said Egypt’s Tourism Minister Rania al-Mashat.

 

In April, Egypt won the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) Global Champion Award at the 2019 Global Summit in Seville, Spain, for its significant leadership role in promoting tourism resilience.
