Opening Doors to Post-Revolution Tourism in Egypt

Opening Doors to Post-Revolution Tourism in Egypt ( During Egyptian President El-Sisi's recent visit to New York to speak at the United Nations' General Assembly and meet with President Obama, the president also met with a small group of Egyptian-American business leaders to discuss their ideas and advice for economic development in the post-June 30, 2012, revolutionary era.

The president's own plans include a project already underway to widen the Suez Canal, already the top generator of foreign income for Egypt. Egypt began digging its new parallel canal in August, eventually allowing ships to sail in both directions at the same time over much of the canal's length. This will decrease waiting hours from 18 to 11 hours for most ships and will double the capacity of the Suez Canal from 49 to 97 ships a day.

Tharwat Abouraya, CTIE, President of Travel Business CPR in Washington, DC, was among the invitees to President El-Sisi’s meeting of business leaders. He presented a proposal to revive tourism from the USA to Egypt, including sustainable tourism development projects and recommendations related to an upcoming multi-million dollar USAID contract for Egypt.

Mr. Abouraya's proposal includes
• training and certification of all Egyptian travel marketers and sellers in customer service and crisis management – including post-event communication, taking best practices following such events as hurricanes and tsunamis in New Orleans and Japan or oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico or Alaska;
• a promotional video focused on Egyptian friendship with the American people and Egypt's relative stability in the Middle East.
• specific recommendations and action steps regarding the safety of Nile cruise floating hotel docks, National Museum Of Antiquities preservations and water drainage projects on the Pyramids/the Sphinx plateau in Giza.

Mr. Abouraya is awaiting Egyptian government approval for his own project as well as the USAID bid opening.
