Egypt Ranks Among Fastest Growing for Tourism

Egypt has been named as the second fastest growing tourism destination of the year according to the World Tourism Organization, having welcomed some 5.26 million international visitors to date, a 51 percent increase.

Keeping pace with the overall global growth of tourism, which has so far seen 21 million more travellers compared to 2016, Egypt attributes the influx to its security and governmental forces’ efforts to enhance the country’s profile as one of the world’s top vacation destinations.

As per the forecast shown in World Travel & Tourism Council’s report Travel & Tourism Economic Impact 2017 Egypt, the country is expected to attract 5.45 million international tourists this year and 12.49 million by 2027.
