Alexandria seeks to revive tourism with postcards from Egypt

Al Masry Al Youm

An initiative was launched in Alexandria to revitalize Egypt's tourism industry following the recent decline in tourist activity.

The initiative, entitled "A Million Postcards," involves the distribution of a million pictures of monuments, natural scenes and paintings from Egypt to embassies, consulates, gift shops and foreign cultural centers, especially those of countries that send large numbers of tourists to Egypt.

The postcards will also be displayed at Egyptian artistic and cultural events held overseas.
