Tourism Minister Nikolina Angelkova talks in Seville with Egyptian Tourism Minister Raniya Al-Mashat. The meeting in the Spanish city took place at the 19th Global Summit of the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), which this year is being held under the banner Visionaries in the Tourism Sector.

Minister Angelkova presented the various opportunities of our country to offer in addition to the traditional sea and winter tourism also a rich palette of high quality specialized services at competitive prices - balneo and SPA, gourmet, eco, congress and other types of tourism. She stressed the good contacts between the tourism administration and the business on both sides to make more cultural and historical trips.

Promoting the spiritual heritage of the past is one of our priorities to encourage the influx of more foreign guests, said Minister Angelkova. She assured her interlocutor that progress has been made on the tourism cooperation agreement between the two institutions and that the document is expected to be signed this year.

Rania Al-Mashat stressed that Bulgaria is becoming an increasingly attractive tourist destination as it offers a diverse and quality product.

Last year, around 3744 Egyptian citizens made tourist visits to Bulgaria and 1,172 Bulgarians traveled to the Arab country. However, the opportunities for enhancing this flow are much greater and we will work together to promote it, said the tourism leaders of the two countries.
