This will be achieved through the provision of assistance to the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, in partnership with the Egyptian Tourism Federation (ETF). The activities to be carried out as part of this consultancy include:

  • developing a national strategic framework for action;
  • developing a national product development strategy;
  • elaborating conceptual tourism master plans for four priority tourism areas (Pyramids, Luxor and Aswan, Hurghada, and South Sinai) with the aim of defining and developing demand-oriented, well-focused, and viable systems and projects. This will involve enhancing existing products to attract private sector investment in the post-COVID era.

This activities involve approaching key heritage sites, include by UNESCO in the World Heritage list, such as “Ancient Thebes with its Necropolis”, “Memphis and its Necropolis – the Pyramid Fields from Giza to Dahshur”, “Nubian Monuments from Abu Simbel to Philae”.
