Egypt predicts rise in visitor numbersEgypt’s Tourism Minister, Mounir Abel-Nour, has said the outlook is bright for visitor numbers in 2012 and that the country is now recovering from the slump it suffered during the Arab Spring.

The minister, who was speaking in Dubai at a conference on the hotel industry, outlined his hopes for attracting no less than 14.5 million holidaymakers to the nation this year. He also explained his belief that the years to come will bring with them continued improvement within the sector, simply because Egypt is now a much more democratic, less corrupt place and one that is altogether more attractive to potential visitors.

He was also quick to dispel fears that the country’s new regime will impose more draconian rules on guests, confirming that rumours about measures like the banning of alcohol in hotels will definitely not become a reality.
