The Information and Decision Support Center of the Egyptian Council of Ministers has published a new infographic showing Fitch Solutions’ recent expectations about the future of tourism in Egypt during the coming period until 2026. Fitch expects an increase in the number of tourists in Egypt in the medium term; Due to expectations of a decline in the repercussions of the Russian-Ukrainian war and the decline in restrictions related to confronting the Covid-19 virus. According to Fitch; 52 million tourists will come to Egypt until 2026, or about 11.6 million tourists to Egypt in 2023, 13 million tourists in 2024, 13.5 million tourists in 2025, and 14 million tourists in 2026.
