Tourism plays a significant role in the Egyptian economy, as it represents, according to government reports, more than 15% of GDP during FY2018/2019. According to a report by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), travel and tourism supported 11.9% of the nation’s GDP in 2018. In addition, travel and tourism is responsible for 9.5% of all Egypt’s employment, providing 2.5 million jobs.
