Scope of view
The Industry of the Age
 
I have never claimed that I am a journalist, but I was caused to be enthusiastic by Abou Al Hool newspaper to write the following lines I very much believe in the major in to which the developed world that actually know the value of things and how to deal with them, inclines to. So that, I will talk with you my dear reader about the industry that attracts the world attend as it greatly affects the future of the world countries within an age that does not acknowledge but income, savings as well as creating job opportunities to solve the problem of unemployment from which the whole world suffer.

The tourism industry that achieved unimaginable profits last year through which about 800 million tourists made tours around the world and spend billions on them.

That industry that is being spent on nowadays more than the world major industries like weapons, planes, cars,.etc.

I address the Egyptian people not the government or the private tourism sector as the already realized the value of tourism in Egypt and which contributed by about 11.3 % of the local income last year. Tourism sector income reaches 7.6 milliard dollars compared to that of Suez Canal that reaches nearly 4 million dollars.

Is not enough to know that every million tourists visiting Egypt, provide 200000 job opportunities for the youth?!... It is, therefore, a national necessity via which the Egyptians could build up their future. Moreover, tourism industry is the sole one that calls for keeping the environment clean in such away that could attract tourists from all over the world.

Finally, I would like to conclude with there words whose sayer I respect:" Tourism reforms what was destroyed by policy".
