Cairo-Aswan Nile cruise to re-open / Egypt targets Chinese tourists

"Minister of Tourism Zohir Garana said that the ministry is now coordinating with the ministries concerned to re-operate Nile cruises between Cairo and Aswan."
The same page looks at the increase in the number of Chinese tourists to Egypt:
The Egyptian Minister of tourism , who visited China last month, said that his visit to Beijing aimed at activating the China's decision to add Egypt to the list of the major travel destinations for Chinese tourists. According to a report by the World Tourism Organization (WTO) on the reason that the Chinese market has become one of the great expectations of tourism industry worldwide, China would produce 100 million outbound tourists by 2020. Egypt is seeking to attract at least one million Chinese tourists, said Garana.
