The Ministry of Tourism is supporting a number of projects aimed at raising the standard of touristic services in several cities.
Through its general investment budget, the ministry provided the necessary support to develop new sidewalks for the Al-Arish Corniche, as well as build a lighting system.
The ministry also plans to build a new road, from the Qantara International Road to the Byzantine antiquities in the city of Khoweinat, next to the Zaraneeq protectorate, which will become a tourist site.
The plan includes developing entrances to the villages and neighbourhoods overlooking the road leading to Abu Simbel, including sidewalks, lighting, and painting. In addition to facilitating tourism, the improvements will also helps the citizens of these areas.
The Tourism Development Authority and the ministry’s planning sector have funded the construction of a new 8 km corniche in Marsa Matrouh city, the White Corniche, in an attempt to improve capacity for internal tourism, given the area’s beautiful beaches, soft sand and clear water.
The planning sector is also supporting workshops that support women through crafts training, providing raw materials and marketing products in a number of governorates. The crafts being supported include arabesque, glass painting, clay and carpet making in places like Beheira, Dakhla, Kharga and Farafra.
