Egypt to close tourist office in Stockholm

Egypt to “maximise benefit of tourist offices abroad”
Egypt has been reorganising its tourist offices around the world, steadily closing some of them to cut costs. Last December, the country closed down four offices, and three more are going to be closed soon. One of these will be the Egypt State Tourism Office in Stockholm.
After 20 years of work in the Nordic and the Baltic countries, the Egypt State Tourism Office in Stockholm will be closed at the end of June. From July, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden will be covered by the Egypt tourism office in London, while Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania will be covered by the office in Moscow.
“The Nordic and Baltic markets are very important and potential markets for Egypt’s tourism especially during the winter season,” said Dr Mohamed Elsherbeiny, director of the Egypt Tourist Office in Stockholm. “Egypt is looking forward to targeting the same level of tourists from the Nordics and Baltics as in 2010 when 600,000 visitors from these countries enjoyed Egyptian destinations.”
Elsherbeiny reassured that “the good cooperation with tour operators, trade, media and other stakeholders in different markets will continue with the London and Moscow offices.”
