UNWTO issues positive comments about Egypt, welcomed by Egypt Ministry of Tourism

Egypt's Minister of Tourism Yehia Rashed welcomed (10-May-2016) the UNWTO's call for the lifting of any unnecessary bans on travel for tourists. He said: "I fully support the UNWTO's positive message today that all unnecessary bans on travel and tourism should be lifted. Egypt has taken significant positive steps in addressing security issues and the UNWTO's support is to be warmly welcomed. I call upon all those countries who currently possess flight restrictions to consider the UNWTO's request positively. The support of such an influential United Nations body inviting the world to Egypt marks the start of a great opportunity for Egyptian tourism. With Egypt chairing the UNWTO Executive Council for the next 12 months I look forward to many more positive developments." [more - original PR]
