I would not want that responsibility at this time, or for the next few years. What has happened to the Red Sea Resorts, it seems the faithful Russians have vacated the area. According to a couple who are now in Luxor and spent a week in Hurghada.

There's a new minister of agriculture, education and interior as well as a few others. Funny that was all overlooked.

Nothing funny I only deal personally with the Tourism Ministry hence I commented that the head of the ministry had been changed.

2. Minister of Toursim – Khaled Ramy

Despite graduating from the faculty of engineering, Cairo University in 1981 and working as an architect for several years, minister Khaled Ramy started his career in the tourism sector in Egypt in 1987 when he passed the tourist guides' exam in Egypt's ministry of tourism in 1989.

As a tour guide he worked in several local and foreign tour companies in Egypt before he became a tourism attaché in the Egyptian embassy in Vienna.

In 1999 he was appointed as a supervisor in the technical office of former minister of tourism Mamdouh El-Beltagy. In 2004 he was appointed as the head of the technical office of the minister of tourism.

Later he was appointed as the head of Egypt's tourism authority office in London until 2012.

He served as an adviser of e-marketing to the head of tourism authority since 2012.

This is the first time a minister of tourism has been chosen from Egypt's tourism authority.

Khaled Rami is replacing Hisham Zazou as minister of tourism

---

At least he has some experience.
