The ministry is making plans to boost tourist arrivals to Egypt to 14 million by 2011, Garranah added. Tourists from UK were the highest in 2006, with 1,033,006, followed by Russia (998,148), Germany (966.386) and Italy (786,130), the minister said.
At the Arab level, Libyans topped tourist arrivals (443,197), followed by Saudi Arabia with 288,380, he added. European tourist arrivals to Egypt in 2006 were up by 38 per cent to 6,886,810 compared to 2005, while Arab tourists rose 12.9 per cent to 1,921,000 and US tourists were up by 15 per cent to 290,000, he told reporters.
