‘The issues we continue to face on the path to democracy are focused solely in our capital’ said Hisham Zaazou during a visit to London. ‘Events in Cairo are being perceived as happening across Egypt, which is simply not the case. We will adopt a pragmatic approach of not promoting Cairo and focus on the rest of Egypt – Luxor, Aswan and the Red Sea. There’s one million square kilometres (386,000 square miles) of country beyond Cairo that is unrivalled in its appeal to UK visitors.’
In September 2013, 300,000 tourists visited Egypt, a drop of 90 per cent compared to September 2012.
