Parliament Deputy Speaker Mohamed Abou El-Enein praised the joint report of the parliamentary committee of Media, Culture, and Antiquities, the offices of Tourism and Civil Aviation parliamentary committees, and the Budget and Planning committee regarding a draft law of establishing Tourism and Antiquities Fund.
During a plenary session held on Sunday, Abou El-Enein agreed on the submitted draft law, asserting the importance of situating different funds in one entity. In addition, he urged concerned officials to launch promotional campaigns for tourism in Egypt.
Moreover, Abou El-Enein warned the parliament from the absence of those promotional campaigns could negatively impact the sector.
He added that those promotions should be carried out in different media forms and on social media platforms, adding that tourism can offer Egypt more financial resources that could be relieving for the national budget.
