DUBAI: Egypt’s tourism revenues fell to about $4 billion in 2020, down from $13 billion the previous year, amid the global pandemic that severely damaged the sector worldwide.

However, Minister of Tourism and Antiquities Khaled Al-Anani said that the country’s focus has shifted from visitor numbers to remaining a safe destination despite the coronavirus outbreak.
