The Minister of Tourism of the country, Mounir Fakhry Abdel-Nour, who was successfully «put» in the chair of the new vice-president of the country, announced his views, even more precisely, the absence of those. This was reported by the newspaper As-Sharq Al-Awsat broadcasting from London.
Abdel-Nur, a member of the Egyptian Coptic community, took over as Tourism Minister in February 2011 and briefly served in the government of Ahmed Shafiq, the last prime minister appointed by the country’s now ousted President Hosni Mubarak.
The current head of Egypt, Mohamed Morsi, has repeatedly announced his intention to offer one of the major government posts to a Christian. In an interview with Saudi Arabia-owned Al-Sharq Al-Awsat, Abdel-Noor stressed that the election as president of Morsi, known for his long-standing membership in the Muslim Brotherhood, should not give Egyptians cause for concern. …
It is known that a number of representatives of the tourism business have expressed fears that the Islamist government may scare away market participants. Munir Fakhri Abdel-Noor, however, promised the industry a colossal surge in activity, and in the short term, namely in the next six months, which will provide $ 25 billion in income to the economy in 2012. “I am sure of that,” the minister stressed. Recall that according to statistics of past years, the maximum annual income of Egyptian tourism was about $ 12 billion.
