After the 2011 Revolution, Egypt’s tourism industry was in turmoil. Today, eight years later, the industry has been making a remarkable comeback. Indeed, while we have been facing a lot of obstacles over the past few years, recently, Egypt’s tourism ministers have successfully managed to restore tourism to our beloved Egypt.
With regards to this, the first Serbian flight arrived at Cairo International Airport on the 5th of June 2019, from Belgrade Nikola Tesla Serbian International airport, after an almost 13 years hiatus. The flight arrived at CAI airport with both the Egyptian ambassador to Serbia – Amr Aljowaily, and the Serbian ambassador to Egypt – J. Vukadinovic on board on Wednesday. This achievement will have a significant impact on the bilateral trade bonds between both countries, in addition to strategically placing Egypt as the only African stop for Serbian flights in the whole region.
On a side note, earlier this May, Egypt’s ambassador to Serbia – Amr Aljowaily – hosted an Iftar for the Egyptian community in Serbia, in the presence of Egypt’s Olympic champions in taekwondo, including Hidayat Mala and Radwa Reda, along with five Imams and Quran reciters from Al-Azhar, and the Egyptian Ministry of Endowments.
Also, Mayor of Novi Pazar, Nihar Bisevac, and Serbian Deputy Prime Minister, Rasim Ljajic, invited Egypt to participate in various cultural activities to be held by the city during this summer, in order to pioneer the regional cultural role of Egypt.
