Egypt’s tourism will bounce back

The tourism industry in Egypt will bounce back within weeks, following the explosions in Dahab on April 24, according to the Egyptian Tourism Minister, Zoheir Garannah, in an exclusive interview with Middle East Economic Digest (MEED).
'We are confident in our product and that people will continue to travel here. The main impression that the attacks left was one of people’s solidarity,' said Garannah.
The minister referred to the tourism industry’s increasing resilience: Egypt took two years to recover after the massacre in Luxor in 1997, and six months to bounce back after the Sharm El Sheikh attack in July 2005.
