International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP) supports appointment of Egypt`s new Tourism Minister
ICTP President Professor Geoffrey Lipman said: “It`s not only a question of re-affirming the commitment of the government to support this pivotal sector, but a recognition that the Smart Growth Strategy, with increased connectivity and a strong green growth vision, unveiled by the Minister last month in Luxor, is the right direction to re-invigorate the market. ICTP was privileged to be present when this strategy was unveiled - we strongly endorsed it then. And we repeat that position today."
