Published in Ahram Online on 21 - 09 - 2019

Egypt has jumped nine places in the Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Index (TTCI) released by the World Economic Forum (WEF) in September.
According to the WEF's travel and tourism ranking report, Egypt's tourism sector was ranked 65 in the TTCI from a previous ranking of 74.
The report showed that Egypt made a huge leap in the tourism promotion and marketing strategy to hold the fifth place.
According to the report, Egypt was the first Middle East and North Africa country in the field of environmental sustainability and cultural resources.
Egypt also showed the best performance in the security and safety index, the report said.
