Posted on 28 Mar, 2016 Category: Travel News,Egypt

In order to give impetus to the tourism industry, the 2nd Egyptian International Parachuting Championship was held in Giza, Egypt on March 2, 2016.

The high-flying competition attracts more than 200 skydivers from 17 countries. By this competition, Egypt aims to emphasize that Egypt is safe to host such a magnificent competition and strong enough to weather the storm.

The Great Pyramid of GizaThe Great Pyramid of Giza, one of the world seven wonders of the ancient world, served as the stage for the international skydiving competition.

The tourism sector, one of the largest industries of Egypt and a main source of foreign income, is of great importance to the country. However, due to a series of unfavorable factors in recent years, tourism has suffered a plummet with a youth unemployment rate of up to 26.3%, according to the Central Agency for Public Mobilisation and Statistics.

In addition to the offbeat sport competition of skydiving, Egypt makes many further efforts in some respects to ensure tourist that their Egypt trips will go without a hitch. To enhance airport security, the government hires British risk consultancy to review security and makes sure Egyptian airports adhere strictly to international aviation standards. Meanwhile, to upgrade the security level of tourist attractions, 32 million US dollars have been spent to expand the use of security cameras, scanning and detection equipment and sniffer dogs in Sharm el-Sheikh and Hurghada, according to the Egyptian Tourism Minister Hisham Zaazou. 

Officials say those measures are helpful and the situation will be better in 2016. The rich natural and ancient treasures in Egypt remain the great things not to miss to tourists, who are believed to come back in the end, they added.
