Egypt’s Environment Ministry has announced ecotourism incentives in a bid to boost the economy as well as tourism. The Egypt authorities have begun promoting their ecotourism zones identified as coastal, desert, riverbanks and wetlands.

In order to promote sustainable development and economic growth, the cost of entering natural reserves and protectorates will be reduced by half. The announcement was made during the Environment Minister's appearance on the Al-Mashhad programme.

By introducing these incentives, Egypt’s aim is to expand the tourism industry to the global level. The flourishing of ecotourism will give scope for employment and foreign exchange initiatives will multiply.

Private sector will also be invited to collaborate in tourism development activities for cost cutting purpose. The Egyptian tourism ministry is encouraging citizens to develop skills to promote ecotourism. Egypt is building this trend of promising entertainment opportunities in tourism to move forwards towards a healthy economy.
