3 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Tourism is the fourth largest exported product and largest exported service in the world, representing 7% of global exports of goods and services or 0% of service exports alone. Tight economic conditions in some major tourism generating markets together with the 9/11 events in the U.S., and the subsequent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have however dampened the growth of global tourism which recorded unusually lower rates of growth versus growth of GDP. Tourism performance for the early months of 2004 shows much better prospects, though. Egypt has no doubt been affected by these international developments, experiencing below average growth rates in tourism activity. Nevertheless, tourist arrivals were 10 times higher than the global average during , and attracted some 20% of tourist arrivals to the Middle East. This growth in International Tourist Arrivals (ITA) has generated $4.6 billion in tourism receipts that account for 22% of total exports of goods and services and 9% of services exports, making tourism the largest foreign currency earner in Egypt. Estimates indicate that tourism will generate some $6.1 billion in 2004, thus ranking the Egyptian tourism market as the 28th largest market in the world. The tourism sector in Egypt is estimated to generate a total of $12.8 billion in both direct and indirect economic activity. ITA reached 8.1 million in 2004, recording a 4.1% increase over the previous year. Western and Southern European markets are the prime generators of tourism for Egypt, followed by the Arab, Eastern European and the U.S. markets, respectively. Other new tourism generating markets in Southeast Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe are also emerging as evidenced by extremely high growth rates. To meet the growth in demand, tourism accommodation capacity has also been growing. It outpaced demand growth with a 7% increase in capacity over South Sinai has the highest capacity growth followed by Luxor and Alexandria. Matrouh is also beginning to undertake vast expansions and development. In addition, there has been observed growth of tourism-related services and facilities during , such as travel agencies, restaurants and cafeterias. Moreover, environmental awareness is increasing as shown by the growing number of existing nature protectorates. Furthermore, the planned expansion and development of cultural and infrastructure facilities should further enhance tourism performance in the coming year. The appointment of the new body of the Ministry of Tourism in July 2004 signifies the start of a solid long-term vision for the tourism sector in Egypt. The focus is now on expanding and encouraging tourism investment, especially in new tourism destinations that have high demand potential. Improving the quality of services to meet international standards and marketing Egypt in new potential markets are the pillars for reaching the sector s full potential. AmCham BSAC 2005 iii
