Taleb Rifai Taleb Rifai

Taleb Rifai, Secretary General, World Tourism Organization (UNWTO)

Egypt is […] a leading tourism destination. “Egypt has undertaken strong initiatives in terms of [...] safety and security,

unlocking the support of airlines and tour operators, incentivising demand and engaging key players in Egypt in these concerted efforts.

[…] We should never forget that Egypt is one of the world’s most remarkable tourism success stories.

Over the last decade, the number of visitors to Egypt practically tripled and so did the exports generated by international tourism.

Egypt is, and will continue to be, despite all challenges, a leading tourism destination.”
