Egyptian Minister of Tourism and Antiquities Khaled Al-Anani and his Greek counterpart Harry Theoharis discussed on Monday ways to support the tourism sector amid the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as well as taking preventive measures to limit the spread of the virus.
In a phone call, the two ministers agreed initially over some measures to be followed after the return of the tourist movement to preserve tourists’ and workers’ health.
They also discussed arranging joint tourism promotion programmes at all international tourism forums.
Greece has previously announced its readiness to receive foreign tourism from some countries starting July.
Last February, both ministers met to discuss activating the tripartite cooperation agreement between Egypt, Greece, and Cyprus signed in 2017 in the field of maritime tourism.
